In competition or in practice?
Sven Kalmar was said to have thrown the XXD 5 42 meters indoors at a demo...

137’. Huge cast! Mind you the XXD is 105’. MED is 120’. So I would expect a few more feet are possible. There may be a little more with the MED too, especially over a slippery floor, or at altitude! But I think that the physical constraints of the line will at some point mean that we hit a wall. I think that wall is around 135 at sea level and on a pool, flat on the floor! I look forward to being shown wrong of course :)

Cheers, Paul
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.

Yes huge cast!
My xxd's where 120 too... the orange versions, appart from the 140 feet one Bruce send me just to mess with my head I think 😉
And I'd rather throw the 105 version for distance than the 120 one.. first ones go further 😉

Hi Lasse.
Why the first one goes further?

Hi Mike

Less fat runningline to drag out, more thin shootingline. Needs a smooth connection though 😉
