Default Re: World record distance WF 5wt?

Sounds a bit like delusions of grandeur. In 2001 I was witness to as well as participant in a casting for distance contest that determined placement in a fishing competition.
24 very competent casters (some well known) were given reels loaded with Cortlands newest line at the time 333 wf. After it was all over no one had gone farther then 79ft using 5wt rods and this line. After seeing those results first hand can't imagine anyone adding on 100 more ft of distance!
