Hi all. Since I cant have a custom rod built at this time, due to the guy being busy, I am gonna wait till next winter, and for the meantime pick up a good but lower-cost rod for slinging plugs and maybe a live eel every so often. I have read excellent reviews about the newer Tica Dolphin series, and after looking at a St. Croix, have decided on the Dolphin as it is able to load up about an ounce more weight. Problem I am having on deciding is the grip type. On the Tica site, they have listed another 7' 1-piece Dolphin surf rod, with "Grip Type B"....

UGSA70MH1S7'0"/2.13m

1
182
10-25
3/4-3
FAST
MH
Grip type: A
Graphite

UGSA70MH1C NEW7'0"/2.13m

1
180
10-25
3/4-3
FAST
MH
Grip type: B
Graphite

I see that the new "B" grip type rod is just a tad lighter in weight at 180 grams. But I am unable to find a photo which refers to the different grip types. Does anyone know the difference between "A" and "B"? TIA

hello.gif Aya boy. Long time no see. Wow, a GW. Very nice. I'll be up N down the coast when I can, but I'll mostly be upriver when I can during the herring run. I'd rather do battle with all the bass chasin alewives upriver than do battle with all the peeps, tourists, traffic and kooks down at the beach! :lff3:

Looks like things are well with ya. Hopefully fish sometime soon :cheers:
