Casting Variables

This is interesting :D My default thought I that I have to slow down when using softer rods. Although I should preface that with the fact I'm a shit caster. Years ago in NZ after casting the TCR5 and the FT5, I tried one of Christian Strixner's cane rods. First time casting cane for me and I honestl...

What setup do I need to get into this? Barrio's ST27 head a good place to start or make my own. Got a few unused lines here.

What about shooting line/backing and rod weights?

Do you wax on or wax off?

I'm fairly sure some of the threads are pre-waxed, maybe Danvilles and some Uni thread??
