Actually, there can be times when you'd cast more often. I fish the Everglades occasionally for tarpon and we sometimes end up casting to busts in the creeks. During particularly active times it can be cast, cast, and cast again. One wouldn't spend a whole day doing this, however (at least I never would.) The Penn makes for such a fine tarpon reel otherwise that I would at least try it first. If you fish only the ocean-side flats or the Gulfside of the Keys you won't have any problem at all with its weight.
