I've been new to long distance casting. So my personal current record is about 90 meters or about 100 yards. I know it's not much in surfcasting but I am working on improvement. I am fishing this days so I postponed my practicing for next winter.

As for now I am using 3.6 meter rod with 2 or 3 ounce sinker....

I would like to know, how long do you people cast and with what equipment?

Most rods that length here in the U.S. and elsewhere are rated for a sweet spot of anywhere from 4 to 8 oz. I have an old moderate-fast action 3.6m fiberglass rod that casts a 5oz. sinker 135 yards and a fast action 3.8m graphite rod that I've cast 165 yards with 6oz. sinkers.

You didn't mention your rod's "Lure Rating" (sinker weight rating), but I'm guessing it's optimized for a heavier sinker than you're using and you'll immediately get quite a few more yards by going heavier.
