That's cool to see.... but remember that the guys that cast for distence are only tossing 3 maybe 4 oz at the most maybe alittle more but that's it and the line waight is under 10 lbs. lets see them try that with 8 and bait.

the tournaments have 100, 125, 150, and 175 gram classes which is from 3.5-6.25 ounces. I have a buddy who does the tourney thing and he is a master class caster with an average of over 725 feet. now with weight and bait he might get 475 feet, maybe 500. in the tournaments they use bullet like sinkers, 14' rods with a low reel seat position for better distance and the line they use is not based on lb. test, but rather in mm's. the touney rules are (i believe) 100 and 125 grams use no less than .28 mm which is somewhere between 8 to 14 lb. test. the 150 and 175 gram uses .31 mm line which is somewhere between 12 to 17 lb. test. and they must use a .75 mm shock line.
