Re: World record distance WF 5wt?
What seems to be being missed here is that those really long distances are with rediculously heavy shooting heads and thin mono running lines. With a "regular 5 wt." it's about as likely as Bigfoot being on America's Got Talent. Look at Rajeff's distances with a real fly line. He looses at least 100' of those long distances. One more thing. I don't consider it fly casting when you do those overweighted heads and tiny little mono running lines. If you start saying "I can cast 180' witha single hand rod." and fail to mention it's on one of those silly shooting head systems it's kind of dishonest. But that's not what the guy said to Pegboy. He said "He then mentioned that he can cast a regular weight forward 5wt floating line 180'."
