I can easily hit 90' with this rig.

Only problem is at that range you have almost no idea where your flies happen to be. You have to look down the line and 'mentally' add a few feet to get some sort of idea where you're actually fishing.
I agree my buddy has the same Meizer great casting rod .mine is a ACR 11'9" 3wt. We swap when we fish together fish both.really enjoy both.can't go wrong with either.
