    The brilliant Daiwa R50+ SSR has a purpose designed long casting brother, called the Shore Line Shiner R50LD - FG. Maybe worth a look.

    Careful with the Shiner 17's, I've had them and they are very very good, long casting, but they dive a bit deeper than I liked, ruling them out for proper over the top of reef fishing

    I have the Fishing Ape yellow camo special edition of the R50 LD, it does cast very well for its size but I think swims a bit deeper than SL's.

    Dave I fired out the Daiwa R50 SSR for the first time on saturday no fish,but really pleased with the distance,regularly cast good distances.IMA Houndglide does the distance as well but not a lot of colour selection at the moment

    Don't know Trev, this thread is 2' or less.

    Cheers Alex, I am thinking a 35g S-Kiv would get a place amoungst the top few casters distance wise

    Yep agree , if your talking bib-less I think you will be hard pressed to get anything that fly's further than Mr Joe or S-Kiv

    X140's run shallow & cast surprisingly well. Worth adding to the short list.

    I apreciate they are probably not a "shallow runner" in the sense this thread origionaly meant, but a lure that can be fished at a shallow depth and casts further than anything else mentioned is a bass bullet. I used to fish a reef from the shore and the 60g BB was the only thing I could reach the holding spot for the bass and they worked! So good were they that I also used to use them on the same reef once I had a boat even though distance was not the issue. The heavy ones sink fast but you can Walk the dog with then just under the surface or a foot or 2 down. If they came in sexy finishes and packaging and cost more (they are about 6 quid) they'd be all the rage. Thinking about it I dont know why I havent used one for a few years - especially given they appeal to my tight fisted side.

    Great call Matt, Vintage maybe, but totally agree they reach places that few other lures do. I can't think of a single reason why I haven't got a couple in my box. Many thanks Matt

    After having a go with them over the weekend I was amazed on the casting distance of the X 3 and the Storm Flutter stick,these look deadly retrieved slow just under the surface , I must give these a go at night soon as they give a very nice wake as well.
