Need a bit of advice I am using a Oracle Scandi 12,9inch Rod AFTM 8 along with Barrio Switch Line 8/9, on the forward cast it makes a screeching noise, this happens with single / double spey and circle cast and roll casts.
Any advice would be most appreciated

Make sure that the line is not touching your reel handle and spinning it round as it is shooting out.

Don't worry, mine does the same!
Probable the rings scraping the coating off your lines (that cost more than the rod) lol.

Seriously though - mine stopped doing it after a few outings, due to being single foot guide rings maybe?

Note: The line may be a bit light given I'm over-lining most of my Shakey rods
Barrio 8/9 switch is 470 grains (30ft head)
Oracle Scandi 12ft 9 #8 rated 494 grains (39 ft head)

Dip your rod rings and the line in the water and all being well, once every thing is lubricated by the water the noise will go away.
Try swopping rods n lines about, see if you can isolate what is making the noise-line or rod rings!.Also you could try a proprietary line lubrication solution see if that makes things better.
I've had similar myself, but seem to recall its a problem that will slowly fade away with use of both rod n line.

I have recently taken to cleaning my line after every session where I go practice my casting... I am using water wipes as they seem to have the least amount of chemicals in them... I am absolutely amazed by how much dirt comes of my line every time... I then go on to treat with mucilin... although I suspect that the grease based lubricant may be causing dirt to actually stick to the line at the next session?? May think about Rios Agent X to see if it makes any difference.
Anyway to answer your thread, perhaps it is dirt that you may need to remove first rather than merely lubricating your line.

I had a le cie fast a couple of years ago with the single leg rings and it screeched with most lines, although if i remeber if you really got a good cast with good line speed it didn't.or am i just telling myself that?

That's down to the REC recoil rings on the le cie that are quite thin but also true for other single leg rings I guess because the line is sliding over a perpendicular edge to direction of travel and the ring can flex slightly; however on coated normal double snake rings you often see wear on the legs as well as the actual ring and they don't make the noise as they can't flex the same way (nor do double leg recoil snakes in my experience) clean fly line helps - ridged running line makes it worse!

Had the same rod that did the same thing. My impression is that the friction on one of the rings was causing resonation of the blank section. It might be possible to eliminate it by adding a little varnish to the guide at the blank to change the frequency.

I found it very annoying and is just one reason I dislike single leg guides. I cannot understand Shakespeare and Guideline using these guides on shooting head rods as the head connection really rattles through them.

Single leg snakes always have a screech as the line goes out, not much you can do about it

My dads 13ft whisker started screeching last season so he finaly retired it, he just thought hed worn the guides out but may be worth adding some varnish to see if it works as its good as a spare rod.
