Well in 'reel life' 2-hander casting competitions (world-wide) 180 feet would bring the People to their feet.

The head on the line used above was a short and heavy (18' rod if memory serves) and coil after coil of light mono laid out on the ground. Seen Steve do this at the Sandy River Spey 'Clave and it is 'impressive' but nothing that would be allowed in anything but very specialized comps.
