Sinking line cast

I recently purchased a full sinking line around a 300 gr for a 990 Rplxi. In the past I have used shooting heads and found them remarkably easy to cast. This line however is a full sinking, not the Teeny style of a head type system. I have found that I can cast the line ok by extending my stroke all the way back and then all the way foreword and waiting an excrushiatingly long period of time while the rod loads. Is this the norm? I've tried opening the loop on my cast and it has not helped. any suggestions to aid in the ease of use would be appreciated.

Thanks
