Looking to purchase a 2 piece surf rod to cast some plugs, sluggos, etc; not a big bait fisherman, I usually cast a flyrod.
Can any one reccommend a few rods, Are you familiar with the Loomis 8'-6" surf rod; too small for stripers and blues?
You might want to take a look at the "Rainshadow" ISP1085F. It is a 9' 2 pc. 10-20 lb. test. It is a bit faster action that allows for a good punch when casting into the wind. Same blank is available in 12' 2 pc. also.
The 1 pc. SW1087 has similar action, and can fish 12-25 lb.
