Funny you mention that. I agree completely. The reality for me is that, from shore I generally prefer a full line, or a mono core running line with a head. More often than not, the extra line speed needed to get that extra distance causes a loop or tangle in the running line anyway as it is pulled up from basket.

I use mono only for getting deeper, faster, as in from a boat over structure in a current. Then the tactic is a short cast followed by zig-zagging the rod tip to feed the required amount of line into the water. For that, mono runing line is the best choice.

What's that saying? - Horses for courses.
