What's your favorite long distance glass casting rod? What's your favorite graphite long distance casting rod? I'm looking for another rod to be my "distance" rod. I've got a 5.5ft Cherrywood for short casts & channel cats. I've also got an 8ft 2-piece Ugly Stik for mid range & a little bigger fish. Now I'd like a rod for the really long casts. If I could get one for $100 or under, I'd like that. Also, I don't know if it would perform any better or not but I think I would prefer a glass rod instead of a graphite rod. I'm too accident prone & I'd probably bump or step on a graphite rod & wreck it. However, it you guys think I would be giving up too much in a long rod by going with glass instead of graphite, I might be willing to risk graphite. Thanks for any help.
