Well I wouldn't say it is too long. Especially if you are doing some surf fishing on the coast. That kind of rod won't work for any pier though. Hey if it is a cheap price and a quality pole and reel I would jump at it. You never know when you might need it. JMHO
I might still need my 15'er for the surf,but its only to be used in a real stormy surf from shore.I would take Sandcrabs advice;personally a 13'is better than a 15'.When fishing from shore the long rod keeps your line above the rough surf when its extremly rough.I wouln't waste my time or money with a 15'er get a 13'er insted .
I got a 15' Ugly Stick I use when there has been a NE and the suds is a cooking, keeps the line out of the waves etc... most times 12' is fine regardless, but for the really nasty sudsy one, the 15' fits the bill nicely...
