after i change baits, i usually tighten it up a little before i make the first cast, especially for a lighter bait, and loosen it a little every cast to where i get it to where i want it. Ur right, old mono line will affect your casts a lot and also cause more backlashes, i don’t use fluoro so don’t know how old fluoro affects casting, i would assume it is worse than old mono.

I do the opposite, I loosen the reels, hold my rod high, push the button and quickly adjust as the bait falls. Im looking for a bait that doesnt free fall, but wont stop falling on its own, just a slow fall and when the bait hits the ground the reel will stop just after the bait does. The only backlashes I get then are wind related, and in Texas the wind rarely stops.

Whatever you are used to and works for you is all that matters.
