Default Small Clousers and line weight needed to throw 'em

I like to throw small clousers for bass, crappie and bream in the size 8-4 range with lead and beadchain eyes. With the lead heads (up to a 7/32 barbell) I have a heck of a time slinging them much more than 50-60 feet with a six weight. My dilemma is that this is the biggest stick I own. I know that an 8 weight would be better. Anybody out there have the same hard time or are there some tricks other than a good double haul to manage These heavy flies? :-/ I am using a Rio nymph line for 6 which weighs in at 178grains. My rod is a medium action 9ftr. Thanks in advance,
