Just Take Fishcador down and show him how its done.

Cant wait for the invitation. Mind you, sinkers in gunners are normally 4oz (approx 120 grams). What's the heaviest lure you can safely cast repeatedly using 20 lb line, 60 grams?

Your bench press will not help your rod action. :rofl:

I will bring a couch, you bring your bench press. Lol


Setup is currently 20lb mono so using 50g lures. 60g won't be an issue.
Bench press does help with the rod action, I find. Helps generate a lot more power in the upper body and control in the legs and back when controlling the weight down. Obviously you wouldn't know.

Bring a couch, maybe I'll carry you and your couch onto the beach ;-)

It is done with mono and I think the diameter is suppose to be 0.26.

I believe it's mostly done with mono and also with DRUM/OVERHEAD reels which offer minimal resistance/drag to line coming off the reel. I believe mono is preferred for tournament distance casting as its surface is much smoother than braid, offering less drag through the air. Big difference casting with an overhead vs a spin reel!!

IMO if your using spin gear(threadline/egg\beater) you will ALWAYS cast further with braid if your using the same LB line in mono.

Jesus, 220kg is a monstrous bench. 220kg or 220lb? Impressive numbers. Anyhow, when ur casting 100+ mtrs, I think technique is probably the biggest factor in your distance. Shall we get the convo back on track?
