For those of us who use artificial lures, an extra 10, 20, or especially 30 feet in a cast is a HUGE deal.
Because every inch of added distance is an extra inch of the best strike zone territory given that the fish have less and less chance of being wary of danger in the area.
After getting more serious about inshore fishing with lures and competing in tournaments over the years, I found myself transitioning from mono, to heavier braid, and then to lighter and lighter braid because I realized that they all enabled me to catch more fish mostly driven by the increased casting performance (longer casts with less effort).
But I never knew exactly how much farther each transition allowed.
So I decided to run this experiment to see how far I could cast a 10 lb line compared to a 20 lb line with all else kept constant.
And I was shocked at the results because the difference in casting performance was much greater than I had originally assumed.
