I’ve got a rod from each of the ranges you’ve listed – Kilwell SLX, Okuma Solaris, Kilwell 222 and also a stiffer Kilwell 9oz that I generally only use for shark/ray fishing. I will have to make a time to cast all my rods with the same sinker and see what casts further. Would only be using sticks for markers so wouldn’t know the actual distance unless I went somewhere with marks for distance. I think I get about the same distance with the SLX as the 222, but that’s most likely because I don’t have the power to load the 222 properly.

I honestly have no idea how far I can cast, and I don’t really care because I still catch fish.
