What rod length do you prefer? 52 Replies

I have used ultralights for years and I started out with the usual 5 footers. They work great and they surely have their place. However, the past year or so I have stepped up to rods measuring…Continue

What's a bateau ?

The rods that I fish UL on...

Luhr Jensen 7' UL rod with BPS TinyLite reel spooled with 4# low vis flouro

Eagle Claw pack rod (light fly/spin combo) with a Quantum snapshot 6# mono

Browning 5' 8" rod with BPS Extreme Tourney reel with 10# nanofil

(numerous other larger setups and a couple of fly rods not relevant here)

The Luhr Jensen is my primary and only true UL (though the Eagle Claws is a very light rod) though all 3 of those can cast some fairly light lures.

The pack rod is usually just for its intended purpose - taking along on a mostly not fishing trip where I may get a chance to fish. 

The Browning has a little more backbone and it's what I use if I am casting/jigging in "snag city" or if I decide to take an occasional bass cast with a larger lure. It has the best reel of these 3.

Most of the time I am in my kayak with the Browning in the rear rod holder and the Luhr Jensen in my hands, lap or front rod holder.

And I happen to inherit the Daiwa ST 1500C. All metal. Shockingly smooth, even though the cosmetic appearance looks like it been through a mythetical epic battle.

I still have a old;; Daiwa- 1000 C spinning reel ;; need to get it fixed;; I wore the bail out on it;; LOL!!   great little reel for panfish!!

Love the old Daiwa. Just got two from a friend, and they were made like a freaking tank, with 2 of 6 bearings in the Jupiter Z series.
