Hi my wife and I are getting new rods we have decided on the glowrods I have read that alot of you prefer other rods but we got to try casting one the other night that a guy next to us had and we liked it and the fact that we wouldn't have to keep buying the little glow things we put on the end of our rod also while we love the pics of the HUGE fish a lot of you catch we probably wont be getting fish of that caliber. But any way my wife is 5'2 105# alot of people seem to like a rod 7' to 9' she is concerned that that will be too much rod for her to use well. OK now to the reel all she had used before was spin cast she caught a 6# channel nite before last and her cheap reel barely got it in so she wants to try a bait cast or spinning reel. Do any of the ladies or guys on here have any input for her. thank you.
