Re: World record distance WF 5wt?
The BOTW finals are held here in SLC and I've seen Rejeff and Rick ??? (brain f@rt on Rick's last name) in practice throws, hit over 130', and competition in the mid 120's.
The rods were either Loomis or Sage 5 wt. and SA distance line. But remember this is all indoors.
If the young rep could really throw 180', then you would have known his name.
Me, I'll call bull$hit.
And for what it's worth, not only is Steve Rajeff a hell of a distance caster, but an extemely accurate caster too.
P.s. just remembered Rick Hartman's the other guys name. Out of Texas
