What is your prefered rod length for your fishing??
I like a 7'6"-8' rod cause I fish from the bank and don't always have alot of room to cast.
I fish from a boat most of the time, and I prefer 7 1/2 to 8 foot rods.
Most of my fishing is from my boat and I like 7 1/2 to 8 ft bait casters and 9 to 12 ft spinners
i life a 7.6 or 8ft from bank like 7-7.5 from boat:cool2:
I LIKE HOW THEY TAKE SOME OF THE SURGE THAT A BIG FISH WILL GIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!:wink:
6'6" to 7 ' for baitcasters. 8' for my spinners.
I like the 7 to 8 ft rods
All I've used over the last 20yrs 99.9% of the time is 8'-8'6" rod Hvy/Mod Fast, to fast tip.
except 1-7' fenwick SeaHawk
I agree with this post.
71/2 to 8 foot baitcasters from my boat. 8 to 10 foot spinning rods from shore
7 ft mh is my go-to rod, but i also use a 6 ft from the boat
since i fish from the bank 99.9% of the time i need casting distance so i have rods from 10.5 ft up to 13ft. they also pull double duty surf fishing.
i have an 8ft rod that maybe the subject of another thread soon.
I only bank fish and all of my rods are 12'.
I fish smaller water than a lot of you guys, 6-7 foot rods are more than enough to cast clear across the river in many places. Plus shorter rods are easier to transport and walk through the woods with.
I'm content using 7' rods . While bank fishing I avoid the big water and fish up close to the bank a lot. In boats the 7' rods work well also. So basically I use 7's because they are pretty universal.
Ive been using 6.6 and 7 but I think im going to build me a couple of 8 for the extra flex when fighting fish, :wink:
7ft. 6in, m/h for me !
For me, It would be the 10ft. or 11ft. rod for Catfishing, 12ft. or 13ft. 3lb. Test Curve rods for Carp fishing, 7ft. to 10ft. rod for Lure fishing and 10ft. to 15ft. for surf fishing. Having the Leverage that is provided with a Longer rod at diistance can not be Overstated. Once you have the fish in close, this becomes less of a factor and some may say that it is a Liability! Speciality rods are also used and the ability to play fish is different on each of these. JMHO!!!!!!
My 7 1/2 foot rods get the most use from me I can use them in places that the longer rods cannot cast
