Waterloo wading rod

I am interested in getting a waterloo rod for wading. I like the salinity 7 ft ml but was wondering what yals opinion was. Which rod and length do yal prefer for wading?

I use a 6'6" HP Lite. No complaints from me. I like it because it is sensitive enough to throw tails with a 1/16 oz. jighead and enough backbone to chunk a corky. Good all around rod.

I looked at the boat show a couple weeks ago and I definitely liked the Laguna liquid better than the Salinity for a rod under $200. I do have a Waterloo HP lite though that is my first go to rod when wading.

If not in a hurry wait for fishing show and go put them in your hand. Probably get a better deal anyway. Laguna posted that they extended their sale on the liquids ($125ish) after the boat show. Not sure for how long but might give them a call to see if they are still doing that.

I prefer shorter rod for wading.

Waterloo

I have both. The 7 foot is perfect.. I think I loose some feeling with the longer rod. The bite is softer and setting your hook takes a little more

7' is too long to sling wading, especially if you have to go "nipple" deep to catch'em....

I prefer my 6'6" billy stix or dan james, i tend to stay away from the mass produced rods due to reliability issues and warranties that are all print and no support

Most of the rods I build for wading are 6'6" or less. Makes it easier to cast when wading in deeper water. For me I feel it is easier to net a fish with the shorter rod and it helps avoid high sticking to get the fish in the net

I have several rods, and this one is my absolute favorite.

I use a 6'6" Ultra Mag as my primary wading rod. I used to fish with 7' rods, but just got where I preferred something shorter; easier to manage.
