The GSB 120 1L is rated at 30 # test line and 2-6 oz lures.
If you don't mind a 9' stick, the GSB 108 1M is rated 30 # test and 1-3 oz lures.
A Ron Arra Surf Series blank XRA 120 4, 10', rated 12-20 # test line and 7/8 to 2 2 1/2 oz lures is a more expensive option. A very good option.
Many times surf casters like the 10'er on the surf side and a 9'er on the bay side. Do you fish more in either area or about equal?
The best about a custom is I measure you to fit where the reel seat goes. We set up the rod for that reel. You can select from several types of butt grips/fore grips. If a spin rod we go to the local ball park to test cast while I set up the stripper guide to provide maximum casting distance.

Custom Fishing Rods by Captain Neil
hi capt, i hope im not rocking the boat, im one who ask a lot of questions.im doing research now on the blanks you recomended,i like to have options.as the reelseat maybe i should have said i dont like a fixed reelseat.if measured from arm pit to fore finger, it is " how shall i say it" is cumbersome?i usually tape my reelseat on.i plan on going to tackle shop and try to handle these rods.and feel it.no jokes pease.the one i would get fist is the beach rod cause thats what i do mostly.i like all rods to be 1 piece, and lightwieght.i dont care on looks i just like the most bang for my bucks $$.this is strictly spinning .thanks again and i hope im not being a pain in the butt.dennis.
