I think those distances may be a tad high. I don't think I have ever heard of a 160' from anyone. 140's are a freakishly long cast. Who's doing 160' and with what?
On a related side note, My Canadian fishing buddy is up to casting the whole 130' Bario fly line out and he's still using the Cabela's Three Forks rod doing it. That by the way is in the mid 120' zone with squiggles accounted for.

You're nicer than I am. I would have laughed and then tried to bet him cash on it.
