wouldnt say im short or weak haha just find 16 footers to cumbersome to fit in the car and fish with plus your giving extra leverage to the fish..i cast 120 meters with a 2hook rig unbaited in the practise paddock normaly i just lob cast at the beach to reduce thex distance 70meters is fine.i use 20 lb braid tho imo anything heavier kills the fight and reduces distance i am going to drop to 15 lb braid and a 40lb leader next time o respool.
