To clarify. I cast 27 wraps (12ft), this equates to 108 yards.

27 wraps is around 108metres, so just under 100yards.

No matter what many say, that is still a big cast.

I reckon just ironing out the creases and practise will put a few more yards on it if you feel you aren't getting everything out of the rods.

Had an hour after my overnighter practicing. After a few adjustments I can now hit 27 wraps on the clip, with a baited chod rig, 7inch leader and 3 3/4 oz distance lead. Accuracy was pretty good too. Still feel like Iím not getting the power in it though. The Terry Edmonds/Steve Crowe video helped a lot. So more practice ahead

To the OP I would perhaps try tapered leadered mainlines (make sure you remove a fair chunk of the thick stuff, unless you need it for protection) This gives the confidence it hit the cast and also the lower resistance once cast.

Also with mono and a bare hooked finger, pay attention to the pressure generated on the finger each cast, if you don't feel much pressure perhaps look at your timing.

Also with your 15lb mainline, correct spool filling and things like 'greased lightning' to treat the line and being sure you are pointing the tip at the lead after the cast can add those vital few more yards, with zero technique changes or additional practice.
It can also improve accuracy as for any given range you don't have to thrash/lay into it so much as you used to.

Also the far bank marker is useful not just for aim but once released if definitely off target I always heavily feather the cast to avoid disturbance in the immediate area. See if your off target is always the same side etc basically just analyse everything!

May be try varying tragectory in case you are inherently 'flat' (I think this is more normal than 'loopy'), also perhaps get a mate or friend of a friend who is a known good caster to try your setup, such that you know the gears limitations better, ie if you think you can improve to their standard you might gain 'x' yards.

Even rig type, Heli's vs inlines, and bait type 20mm bait verses 12mm can make a reasonable difference.
