I test cast it only and not on water. Underlining a rod 1 line weight I found casts of 80+ feet were a breeze with just one or 2 false casts. It's designed for short to medium casts and for SH spey work and is nominally an entire line weight above the AFTMA standard over the 1st 30 feet. The running line is relatively thick so handling may be ok. I love short heads for cast and strip presentations I do so much for cutthroat locally
