I would say the exact opposite is true. Without the added resistance of the levelwind on the line I can really bomb cast with my Trinidad.

Once you get a little more practice, I bet you'll experience the same

One thing that I noticed is that rod length makes a huge difference when casting non levelwind reels. Last year I had a Saltist on a 7' rod, and could not cast cowgirls worth a crapola. Got myself into a 9'6" Predator this year with a Trinidad now watch out, those things will fly.

I'm still getting used to not having a levelwind though, so yeah it takes time and coupled with the right rod.

I have the regular 16 model

We went down to french lake yesterday and I think I am getting better with distance

I kinda wish I would have gotten a longer rod though Im using a 8' g loomis steel

I think the first day I was gun shy since it seemed if I tried to whip it hard I would backlash it

But I have really gotten used to the non level wind and am getting to really like the reel first day not so much
