How long is your 8wt. My 8wt is only 7'10". I turn big flies easy when there's no wind but in the wind I can fail bad sometimes

It's 9ft. I had a lot of trouble in the wind until I switched to a more aggressive taper. The short heavy head really helps punch through the wind and turn over big flies.
