Default Distance limitations of a slower rod?

I am looking at getting a Redington CT 8'6" 5wt as my all-around trout rod, but I'm worried it might fall short in some situations. What sort of casting distances are you able to achieve with these slightly slower rods? What about tighter loops for slightly windy situations? I am a proficient caster and can double haul with the best of them if I need to.

The hardest conditions I'll see will probably be some slightly windy lake fishing and some windy days on the Deschutes.
