Anyone have any tips on how to do this?

--- J.R.

I can get ~65-70 on most casts. I just use my finger tips to hold the mouse and leave my palm on the table. Start w/ 50-55 and then press the space bar when the rod is forward to shoot more line. Hope this helps.

I still have to work a lot on casting :-/

Over 15 meters my line is not tigh enough and sometime that prevents me to hook fishes and I lost them in the 1st pair of seconds.
Thi of course is increased ny the tip being pulled on the side when there is strong wind.

It also helps somewhat to speed up the speed on your mouse in the control panel.

I find that I get the best distance with 48 ft of line. I false cast until I get a good loop, then aim the cast a little high. I get 65-70 ft every time, sometimes longer. I hope this helps.

I've been working on the fingers and palm method that JR reccommended. I've gained about 10' in my accuracy,...from about 45' to 55'. Over that, I've lost my accuracy,
....still working on it though.
