I like the idea of a rod I could use for other fishing also, but I am primarily going to use it for stripers and cut bait on a fishfinder. How would you think a Lamiglas XS10MS would hold up to heavy use throwing bait? Do you think it's 2-4 oz lure weight rating would hold up to casting a 4 oz sinker on a fishfinder rig really hard?
While we're on the subject, I am looking at a Shimano Spheros 8000--would that be a good reel to match up with a 10' lamiglas?
Thanks for your help!
