I cast the six weight 906/4 about a month ago, the only place to test it was on the city street right in front of the shop so I had to cast short between parked cars and under a power line. I thought that six weight cast well 25' to 40', couldn't cast farther than that due to limited space. I'm going to call the shop to find out when they have an extra person to hold down the fort so I can walk up to the park with a salesman and put the five weight Radian through its paces alongside my 590 Z-Axis.
