World Records Distance Casting
« on: February 27, 2019, 07:26:27 pm »
To Admin(s) please don't move this - no one will read it hidden in the casting section....

     SA hosted the recent Sport Fishing World Games (a FIPS sanctioned event) 
In terms of distance casting (I was an official for the 1 practice day and 4 days of competion)

     150g (5.25oz) record was broken twice on the 2nd day 
     1st time was by Rafael Sanzo from Uruguay with a cast of 280.65m 
     2nd time Filippo Montepagano from Italy achieved 281.19m 
     125g (4.4oz) 280.69m Filippo Montepagano (Italy) with Salvador Bustos in 2nd with a throw of 280.26m
100g  (3.5oz) record was also broken with a throw of 269.68m.
For those who think they can cast... 281m is FAR. Very, very far

Quite important to sort the "wedgie" out first before you cast!  :rotfl

Now is not a good time to go fishing... said nobody... EVER!!

Sorting out the wedgie is critical.
Re the SAFFERS - you need to cast 250m consistently across the weight range. Some of our guys managed 250m or close, but not consistently
Technique; practice, practice
Whilst our guys trained, the Italians, as an example train 3-4 days a week, compete weekly and it shows.
They also get full sponsorship for tackle and travel.
It all adds up.

what are the rules for this kind of competition?what line thickness / rod length / reels apply?Not that I think I can get even close to those distances just like to know?
Are there separate competition and rules for using grinders and multiplier reels?

Hi Fishstyx, every ones best cast is always the one where the sinker is not attached to the line

100g: 0.25mm main line; 0.65mm leader
125g: 0.28mm main line; 0.65mm leader
150g: 0.31mm main line; 0.75mm leader
175g: 0.35mm main line; 0.75mm leader

leaders must wrap around the spool minimum 8 times at the point of casting.
No rules regarding rod length; rod must be commercially available.
You can use fixed spool or multiplier reels, must be commercially available

     2nd time Filippo Montepagano from Italy achieved 281.19m

100g  (3.5oz) record was also broken with a throw of 269.68m.
For those who think they can cast... 281m is FAR. Very, very far




Thanks for sharing, it would be interesting to know of these events in advance to go and watch them in action. Just on a side note on the rules do the make provision for some sort of accuracy? I wish I could reach 250m I remember that sitting next to the Vaal we use to have one 16ft rod we casted the whole day with a Night Hawk and a line measurement tool thing and seldom got close to the 200m.. What rig did he use exactly?
Theres more to life than fishing a significant small bit that I havent figured out yet.

Its vergooi, not kolgooi, but there is a court; sinkers that land outside of the court are disqualified.

Rig? You mean what rod and reel?
Rods varied, but from memory:
Filippo Montepagano was using an Italcanna Vector A4 and a Zzeta reel. Rafael Sanzo a Century T1200 Eliminator with a Zzeta reel.
Salvador Bustos a Century T1200 Eliminator with a Zzeta reel

Out of interest, do you know what line they are using to achieve those distances with, and leader material? What knot do they use to attach and what guide setups are they using on those long butt multiplier rods?...  w;k :udman:
Interesting, that the top three aren't grinder fans, what about the rest of the top ten? Where was the first placing grinder caster? There is not much info on the event online that I can find..results and all.

Main line: mixed bag. My personal favourite is AWAS SMissile, but others are very good, possibly better; Sakuma and Ultima Distance are universal favourites.
Leader, who knows... I like as soft and stretch free as i can get, I am using AWAS Big Game until the 1000m spool is finished and then I will experiment.
Blob knot is used for field casting, akin to a FG braid to braid.

Top 30 aren't grinder fans, never mind top 3.
Remember this is about ultimate distance....
Grinder with braid is not allowed. Ever.
If it was, I think things might change a bit.
Guide set ups are about lightness, but my view is that they need to update a little... big guides are heavy, and in terms of the lines, knots and leaders, not required at all.
Since I took up field casting, all my distances went up, significantly, whether with bait or lures.
It just opens up more opportunities.
It's not just about brute strength, If I can cast as far as you, but with less effort, I can do it for longer. Or if you can fish comfortably to 100m and I can do it to 150m, I have about 50% greater area I can cover assuming a 50m wide piece of water in front of each of us... It will not always give me an advantage though....

It's interesting to see how different the casting style is. One expects that the rod tip will dip and then come overhead as we do but it almost stays vertical. You also don't see a big bend in the rod.

It clearly works however!

Overhead shortens the arc too much.
Wide and flat to generate sinker speed.
The rods bend, just very hard to capture in a photo or video as you need to be in just the right spot and that spot puts you in mortal danger should the caster break off....
