Looking at the Joan Wulff roll cast video:
I don't have audio, but the roll cast she makes at 0:35 in the video doesn't look very good to me. She has driven the line into a pile down into the water is what it looks like to me. I wouldn't want to roll cast that way.
Good luck performing a roll cast pick-up with that stroke!
Is this an inherent disadvantage of the front-elbow cast?

The rollcast at 1:25 in this video looks 100X better --

The stroke length needs to change with your distance.
Like others have said, try casting different styles. You will always have a style that will be yours, but knowing and being able to cast different styles will make you a better caster.
Nice job and enjoy the world of getting better at casting. It is good to see someone have the passion and the desire to get better.
Sure thing -- I was false casting the same length of line, so no adjustment to stroke length was needed. I understand what you're saying and will be sure to do this when I keep extending my distance out there
