If this is the reel you're using you should be able to empty the spool with a 2 oz bait on a 10' rod.

The only thing I can think of that could be causing trouble is a rod that's too stiff. A cue stick rod, no matter how long, won't load properly and will be extremely difficult to cast.

In other words, the rod has to load (bend) during the cast.
