100% agree with the below.

When going for the distances with no shock leader its a mixture of bits that all add up to get where you want to be, another part is lead size,1/2 oz here and there made a massive difference, my set up needed a bigger lead and less speed to avoid anything going wrong.

All down to the rod for me

Your either pushing the line to the absolute limit and risk crack offs or you use a shockleader

Mono straight through you will need a blank with a good though action to absorb the shock of the cast. Shockleader you could use most rods

I have used quite a few rods over the years and I would say once your getting to around a ďrealĒ 120 - 130 yds rod pending your coming close to a crack off without a leader. Key point the rod

Esp synchro in 15lb casts very well. (Dont get the loaded version)Excellent abrasion resistance , my syndicate lake is very weedy and it copes well. Tackle box tests breaks at 21lb..

I don't know if you can still get it but a car interior product call Amourall Protectant works great on mono lines, I use it to clean my rods gives a great smooth finish and tried it by spraying on the reel spools the night before fishing big inprovement in casting distance.

kryston greased lightning certainly adds distance but I have recently been using gardners flouro treatment with casting lines and does just a good a job, maybe better as find kryston can make line a bit more difficult to sink depending on depth of course

I would be using a tapered line if you can get one as it's about eliminating the stretch of the lane on the cast, I would also be putting a 3oz lead in a small pva bag to put the wt you are casting up to about 4oz-4.5oz that will help compress the rod and get the best out of it.

Rang Them up this morning after deciding against pro clear as Iím on a weedy Lake. Gone to pro distance instead.

Sent it there and then free of charge and Iíll return the pro clear once it arrives. Fantastic service once again.

He advised distance is better in weed than pro clear.

I had to stop using it after two cut offs in weed just from retrieving the lead and rig, i changed the spools over to the original esp line and didn't suffer another cut off

I found it much more abrasion resistant than I was expecting, no problems at all in weed.

how about fishing 0.35 braid? Powerpro casts very well and itís rated at 50lb and is certainly good for 30lb plus. That would be my choice for distance if braids allowed.

I didn't think the 16lb pro clear was very abrasion resistant

I'm assuming the 0.35mm was a minimum requirement, so about 15lb bs or above. If you are hitting a 3.5oz lead with bait and end tackle hard enough to get 150 yards you are way outside safety limits for any 0.35mm mono.
Safe way to do it is with a tapered mainline treated with kryston greased lightning.
Trying to cast that far without a shockleaders means crackoffs if there is the slightest glitch.
Safe casting.
