You can put a ton of line out there. If you don't need to strip all the way in you can just water load it and recast overhead. I'm not sure how far I can overhead cast my 15'ers but it's a really really long way.

I also should point out that it puts a lot of force on stuff. I used a factory woven mono loop for a long time without problems. It took all of two or three overhead casts to blow the loop open and send my fly and leader into parts unknown. I never found it. I don't use the factory loops anymore.
