Here is a hypothetical question. If you could only have two blue water rods, what would they be? Tell me about your real life rods or your dream rods.
Type?
Construction material?
Features?
Weight?
Length?
What would you expect to pay for them?

My favorite rods are the 15 and 25 kg precision rods. I have only found one blank that compares to them. They have a huige lift and fast action that is not steped. Light and strong. Two piece and aftco rollers. The two rods would cost about 1400.00 to replace them. They are a professional tournament grade rod.


You don't need a rod like this but I like them and that was the question. I like tyo know the kids will fight over my stuff when I am gone. LOL
Oh yeah, nothing but Everol reels touch my rods. Sure they are a bit heavier but so are the fish I'm after......BigMike

Kencor Zebra (Graphite and glass)6'6", 50-80# conventional, with Fuji SIC guides, Aftco reel seat and Gimbal.
Blank will cost you about $200 or more plus guides, reel seat and labor. My favorite 50# bait/chunk rod.

Seeker CJBF70H, (graphite and glass) 7" rated for 30-50 but more like a 50# rod,

conventional, with SIC giudes, Aftco seat and labor will set you back about $300 or more. This my all around rod, use it for casting popper, jigging, and bait fishing.

I think I would have to pick a shortstroker Ian Miller Rod with the new WT guides for stand up fishing. For trolling I would pick an Ian Miller hi leverage trolling Rod with the WT guides. Bad thing is the price. About 3400.00 for the two rods.
