I took the spool out last night and greased the bearings etc....
Has anyone else had this issue, is it some thing I've messed up when cleaning the reel?
Any help or advice would be appreciated...
As far as the actual cast goes, your thumb will eventually learn what it is doing. The key is to place your thumb back on the line right as your lure is about to hit the water.
The reason backlash happens is because the reel is spinning faster than your line is being pulled out. So, if your lure hits the water, it is going to virtually stop pulling line, while your reel is still spinning. Keep this in mind and it will help you judge when to use your thumb and how much pressure to put on the line.
