Re: Long cast reels


Thanks for all the input. While i am aware of the possible increase as far as distance goes dropping my mainline diameter down and the pros and cons of mono vs braid i am quite happy with the way i have things setup. I find it a good enough combination as i can get the distance if i really need it without having it setup as a pure distance rod/reel and while it may not be flash as your guys axeons etc it certainly does the job. Mainly i was just finding out your opinions as far as distance increases from changing from a standard reel, my increase was quite substantial and obviously some of you other guys have noticed a big increase while others haven’t. Perhaps one day if i feel like just going for pure distance i’ll look at changing the setup but not anytime soon as i ‘d rather be out actually fishing in the sea than standing in the park looking like a nob catching grass lol
