Hi all, I have been fishing the beach for the last couple of week's using a 8' rod but it just dose not fell wright,would 9.5 or 10 be a better bet?
Fair point Dave, the Jap bass mags are full of 9ft rods for shore fishing.Sam,
9'4" works well for me. Makes a big difference when casting from the shore, Distances that you really have to work for with 8-8.5' rod, are a relatively easy cast with 9.5' rod. Still the most widely used rod from the shore in Japan.
