Default World record distance WF 5wt?

I was speaking to a young rep at one of the fly rod booths at the Somerset show last week. As he took me to the casting pond to try a rod he mentioned that he was a competition fly caster. He then mentioned that he can cast a regular weight forward 5wt floating line 180'. allthough I kept a straight face I wanted to bust out laughing right at him. I kept my composier and simply said "WOW" but at the same time thinking there is NO way possible he can cast a reguler floating line that far. My question is, what is the actual record distance for a regular WF 5wt line?
