not looking for something that is a light heaver.. looking for your favorite blank/rod for casting 5-6 and small bait.. want distance, light weight and ability to take a trigger reelseat. 11.5 - 13 '..
I've got a pair of RS1418's and they just LOVE 6Nbait. They are my go to rods for bait soaking unless conditions get really gnarly. But the 1418's will do a decent job with 8and a chunk so I consider them a "light heaver".
Mine is a bit different from those previously posted. I have two, a 12 Daiwa UK Moonraker and my real favorite the LDX. Both of those will launch 5nB a long way. I use either a 525 or a CT Rocket on them. Got good bite detection and are light.
