Braid should make the difference. You should be able to get 70-80 ' on your setup. The distance you achieve does matter on weather conditions as well. With wind blowing try side cast (will need some practice) mind the anglers on the sides as well.

Its not the distance you achieve that matters but the place where you need to cast. There are time I was casting miles and fish was caught in the first 10 ' perimeter.

1 ounce is approximately 27 grams. your rod has a minimum rating of 1 ounce, hence you cannot load the tip with weights less than 1 ounce. Unless the tip is loaded you wont get proper casting distance. choose a proper rod according to the lure weights, which will improve casting and handling.

The outfit that you have is definatly on the heavy side for a 14g plug and the heavy mono isn't going to help but you should still be able to cast in excess of 30m with no problems.

I would suggest that you set the plug aside for a while and clip on a weight of about 50g and practice casting slowly with that for a while until you get used to the feel of the rod loading up and when to release the lure as you cast. When you get it right, drop down to a smaller weight. The rod will bend less and you'll have to cast faster to load it but working things out should be a lot easier once you've had a play with the bigger weight. When you're OK with the lighter weght, try the plug. Again, the rod will feel less loaded and it'll be a little harder to judge the release time but you'll get there.

Steer clear of braid for the moment because it's expensive and it needs a little line management practice to prevent it from tangleing.
Just stick to mono but make sure that your spool is correctly loaded to within about 3mm of the lip.

Your outfit is not suitable, in my opinion, for casting lures much under 1 oz.(which equates to 28 gms.).

You will certainly get a better distance with braided line, provided you are familiar with using it (see what Ken L says about braid).

If you persist with using the present setup with light lures, you will soon weary of casting and start to lose interest.

The suggestions to get a lighter outfit, to cast those lures ranging in weight from 10-14 gms.,by Christopher Rodrick and h-venkatesan make eminent sense.

In the long run , investing money in such an outfit will give you pleasure in
fishing and it will also be very comfortable to use .

I am not sure if you wish to budget for such an outfit. In case you do,
you will get some good advice from fellow anglers.

Regards,
Kingfish

As usual, wonderful pieces of advice from the gurus, thanks a lot guys. These are the things that keep ppl like me coming back to the forum.
As ken had mentioned,will try to practice my casting with a heavier weight and then slowly move towards a lighter one, after perfecting that i would either go for a lighter outfit or more heavier lures that would suit my tackle.
