if you think about it, its about 70-120 ft from the kite to the first clip. 50 -70 ft from #1 to #2 and another 50 - 70 ft from #2 - #3. plus whatever distance you run #3 from the boat.

however when there is a stiff wind of fishing 6 to 9 kite baits, the last thing you want to do is reel something else in by hand. when you can hit a button and walk away.
