    I like 7' one piece rods mostly, medium heavy, rated up to 40 lb, but, don't find them much...
    I've got short ones, and up to 11' long ones, but, seems like the 7' ones are the ones I use the most...
    I fish the southern end of the Colorado river on the bank, and the only time I use the long rods is to float a bait down river once in awhile.
    The 7' models slide nicely into my campershell, the 8-9' 2 piece units don't get much use from me, but, they work good...

    I drift and bounce bottom 90% of the time so I like the shorter, lighter more stout rods.

    Kenny-
    Do you have a hard time finding good graphics to put on rods? I guess I never thought about what kind of graphics you'd even use on one.

    by the way- I'd go with the 7'6" - 25-50lb. - 1-5oz. - Fast - Hvy

    W - Hard Chrome and Cobalt Blue.UMMM.

    These will do for a start on that 7'6",I had a set of these nice Hvy Blue TiO,Ch,over Zirconium boat guides and the Alps #20 seat put up.So I got them out and looked them over.

    Starting with a #16, I figured if I put one more #12 in there with 3 more#10's before the tip and maybe take the seat down to a#18, with a 12-14" rear grip & 6-8" forgrip. It just might be a sweet set-up:cool2: What Ya think?

    first off i know verry little about building a rod, but i do know what i like. what i dont see alot of on rods is that kind of seat. most are steel hooded graphite witch quality ones are good but those are SWEET. if ya dont mind me asking whats the price difference between seats like those (doesent have to be those specifically) and a fuji style like on the tiger rods. im thinking there would be a big differance but not shure because ive seen the full metal style on cheeper rods :confused2: im all confused
