I like to fish light. I will be using jigs from 1/4-3/4, and can't do that with the long poles. Also don't want to be throwing 4-6+ weight. Lastly, I'm 76+ and don't know if I could handle 12-13' poles. I realize I will be giving up distance, but I won't have the BIG ONE on the beach. LOL. It's strictly recreational. THX. Joe.
BeachBob, I'm confused (not hard to do). My original post listed two rods. One was 8', the other was 10', both had the same rating 1/2-2. Both of those fall into the salmon rod classifications. So, why keep saying I should look into a salmon rod?
