Howzit Guys

I have been fishing with a coffee grinder for a while now and recently started fishing with a penn reel. What I would like to know is what would be considered a good distance to cast if I want to slide bait. Currently I am only managing to cast between 100 to 115m. Not sure if that is good or bad, please can you guys give me some advice on how far I need to cast my sinker if I want to slide a bait.

Thanks in advance guys

Cast as far as you need to,not as far as you can, if there's a hole 80m out then a 85m cast will be fine.

110 - 115 will be ok 90% of the time in the EC. Not sure where you are?
Depending on tackle used 115 is a decent cast.
