I would look at an 11-13ft rod for pompano as they can be at more of a distance than sea mullet …9-10ft rod for sea mullet.
Im just worried about the stiffness. I want something with a softer tip, wonder if the battalion blank is any different or is it just the guides and other hardware?I’ve been using a 9’ ML Battalion II as my whiting rod. Rated to 2oz but I will
put up to 3oz or 4oz if I’m just lobbing it close. not the original purpose I intended but works pretty well. It will sling 1oz or 2oz pretty good though.
