What model did you get in the PTI
CT40PTI-A is for 10lb test, you can go 14, but it isn't designed to go that high and you may experience issues with it on your spool. You may want to reduce the amount you have on there. It only is suppose to hold 230 of the 10 lb test, so you may need to cut down on the amount you have. That may help.
Also, how are you spooling it on ? Make sure it isn't going on your spool twisted.
I would take off maybe 50-75 yards and see what happens.
Also, if your taking bass through weeds, you may want to even considering a bait cast reel that you can put larger line on and "winch" out those bass.
