I'm looking for a rod that will eventually be teamed up with a VS200. My passion for fishing isn't going anywhere so I might as well spend the money and get some great equipment. I plan on being a bit more adventurous this season, doing some rock hopping and perhaps getting a guide to take me out to Montauk just to get me acquainted.
The rod should be 2 pieces, and should be able to throw a lure of at least 1 ounce. On the other end I think 4 oz should be enough for what I would like to do with this rod. I'm throwing bombers and wood, essentially with some pencil popping mixed in there. Some advice from the local shop are the following:
1) SU 1064S-2 Surf Rod 10' 6"
2 Piece / Line Weight: 15-30 / Lure Weight: 1-4oz
Power: Heavy / Action: Moderate / Spin (Rogue)
Model Color Length Line Weight Lure Weight Action Power Handle Item# MSRP
Surf Rods Matte Black 10'6" 15 - 40 1 - 5 Fast Heavy 34 10426-01 $295.00
I'm leaning towards G-loomis because of the lifetime warranty. What are your thoughts? Any other suggestions will certainly be noted!
