Default how is casting distance measured?....

i don't know how far i can cast... i also know i can't shoot all my line out...

so is it measured from where i'm standing to where the line ends or from the tip of the rod to where the line ends?

some friends and i were talking about casting and they were saying numbers like 70 feet. 60 feet.

and one guy said 85 feet which got me thinking "isn't that the whole line right there or pretty close? since most lines are about 30 yards?"....

anyway, i couldn't come up with a number for them. i guess i've never really thought about it. but now i'm curious.

time to get out my range finder when i go fishing.
