    It'll work on a 12 footer if you want.

    It will work on any size rod you want to put it on. Reels are simple minded objects.

    I agree with everyone else. The length of the rod vs reel does not mater. Whether it is a spinning reel on a casting rod or vice versa will make a difference.

    On another note: I try to use the longest rod I can get away with especially for crappies and on cold days for those sluggish bites on them cats. I like the sensitivity on a longer rod. I use a StCroix 11 1/2' Wild River set-up paired with a Shimano Symetre 1500FI. It's super sensitive. I like "seeing" the hook-up so there is no missed fish (or less anyway)
    I originally thought this was a post on how long of rod is preferred but they are right, Rod length don't really matter as long as the rod in question is balanced with the reel; you oughtta be just fine. Tight Lines to ya'
