Fishforpot, what a load of dribble, just from reading your post in regards to distance its obvious you have no idea. How far are you casting bro 12 miles? 15? im thinking before you go fishing you should ring the japenese government and get the buggers to clear the run way as your lead is there way, dont want any planes flying in your air space? or do you find that when you go fishing the sinker goes around the world and hits you in the back of the head?
There are a number of elements involved with distance casting. Your points are a bit off base.
