Anyone else who has tested these lines yet?

I have had a couple of practice sessions with it. My experience is that it's pretty easy to get a pretty long cast, but difficult to get a really long cast with the line. Most of my casts are in the 48-52 meter range. Feels difficult to get much longer cast than that. The lengths I achive is almost the same in no wind compare to wind from behind me.

Just got mine last week at the cla.

Will go, but nothing like the carron I have been working with for the last few months.
It is no use into a wind and often struggles in calm conditions if trying to get any serious distances.
I think this line is rigged for tail wind conditions, where is does go a fair whack.

I guess we could be looking at new world record distances but because of the alternative casting platforms to enable wind assisted or wind behind casting is this really the way to go?

Should there not be a maximum wind speed as in Athletics so that no unfare advantages could be had?

Also to standardize the competition line I feel will subdue competitors and other makers innovation.
