I just picked up the St Croix Ben Doerr surf rod model SS106MH2. Rod seems nice and has had a lot of good feedback on the board but I have a question. I notice the distance between the reel seat and the first line guide seems to be farther than what I am used to seeing on a surf rod. I was wondering does this hinder casting in any way or possibly cause other problems such as line twist, etc? Mind you I am no expert. Have only been surf fishing for 2 years. Have a baitrunner 4500 that I used to fish on a 10' ugly stick. Was looking to upgrade that stick and chose the St. Croix. Any feedback would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
