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?

Hi.
Loomis makes a 8'6" 2 piece surf rod rated for 10-20 lb test and 3/8 - 1 1/2 oz lures.Used properly this rod will hook and land stripers.

Lamiglas makes a XS 86 MC rod in 2 pieces. 10-17 lb test and 5/8 - 2 oz lures.

Both are graphite.

Check out your local tackle shops. If they don't have them in stock they can order them for you.

Good Luck.

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.

Merrick Tackle, Custom Tackle Supply, Bingham Enterprises, Mud Hole, Schneiders, & Bogans.
That is all I can think of right now.
Good Luck. I am confident that you will like the rod blanks.
