Re: How far can you cast?

normally 100 – 150 metres is my fishing limit using 20lb mono, 0.50 diameter mono shock leader, 5 oz gemini lead and clip down rig (1 or 2 baits). I have a solaris/axeon combo and a powerplay/sceptre combo. Distance can make a considerable difference depending on the terrain. Accuracy is the key with shorter cast towards reefs etc.
I have one of the axeon spools spooled with 200 meters of 40lb braid you can cast for miles with that as its bloody thin and you don’t need the shock leader. Its crap over foul though so only really use it over sand or pulling heavy lures. not particularly sporting either but great for getting a feed of kahawai a long way out.
