    Anybody used one of these? Think it would be possible to make 100yd or so cast with 50lb mono?

    I don't know how far it will cast w/ 50lb mono on it. Most people fish it w/ 17lb saltwater surf fishing. I have never seen anyone use them in fresh water.

    The 525 is capable of 100 yd casts with the right rod and line. Mainly, it needs the right chunker. We use them in the surf quite a lot but if I were using 50# it would be braid. It might be difficult to get distance from 50# mono.
