@Joe P what I'm doing is putting brake ( has 1-10) on 1 with the tension knob on all the way tight then opening it up just until the bait falls but no to fast then leaving then leaving the tension know there and then putting the brake on number 5. Well atleast that's how I have learned from online videos. I have played with the tension knob a little after I got a little more used to casting making it loser little by little so I'm able to cast farther but that's when I bird nest so I just dial it back

@ProvidenceBassHunter , you should tighten the spool tension knob enough so the bait your using SLOWLY falls to the ground when you push the thumb bar. I would also start with your magnetic brake around 7 or 8 and back it down once you get comfortable.
