Daiwa Spinmatic Ultralight Spinning Rods - Model: SMC702ULFS (7' 0", UL, 2 pc.) @ $34.95
interesting review on this one:
“I cut the cork butt off an 8 footer and put a Okuma Fly Reel with Drag on it with Cortland Rocket Taper Floating line. Great balance, great action, great feel. I use a barrel roll flip to put the line and bait where I want it. Best $35 I ever spent and I catch tons of trout with it. Why spend mega bucks”
The action does remind me of a fly rod.
Okuma Celilo Spinning Rods - Model: CE-S-702L-1 (7' 0", L, 2 pc.) at $26.95
i own all the models of the Okuma Celilo as well as a 7 ft and 8ft Daiwa Spinmatic.
I also slip bobber fish with the small floats using a Eagle Claw 5ft im7 blank the fun factor on this rod is 5 out of 5 stars.. Personally I would recommend buying a 7 ft as well as the 5ft er.
All of mine are 8 footers made from lightweight fly rod blanks, both fiberglass and carbon. Prefer the longer rods for flipping lightweight slip float set ups mostly with very small jigs tipped with live bait.
