I only know one that could do it right away.

When you get into distance casting you will find you will hit a wall and can't quite make that X distance. With practice and patience you will hit that distance repeatedly and with ease only to have the next longest cast rear its ugly head.
It's a fun trip for sure.
All good advice. Bill has worked hard to get to where he cracked the 130' mark. He is a natural, but it was hard work, and modifying his brain structure to be 95% casting dedicated, that got him there. (his words).
