    Not that I doubt it, but have you ever actually measured that distance?

    Once thought my 9 ft. spinner with braid was tossing 3 oz. of lead + a dropper rig that far.

    A trip to a nearby football field, however, proved less than successful.

    The farthest toss turned out to be about 70 yards ... .

    No worries, I've never measured it but with a full spool of over 300 yards I've came close to doing half a spool on a 8 oz cast with no bait

    just like in another popular pastime......''it's not the length of the rod, it's the action''

    a stiffer rod will not cast as far as one with more whip to it..
