  1. Really appreciate all the advice given guys! Thanks! I went to cms and decided on the GSB. Looking forward to getting it out on the water.
  2. Haha howdy partnah! Thanks, I just was recommended by an old timer that I fish the canal with to check out CMS. I think I'm going to take a ride down there this week.
  3. Thanks for the input!
  4. Certainly an option but like I said in my post I want a rod that can handle most things well until I have a better idea of what I want in the rod. Most of my fishing has been on the fly or chucking lead into the canal. Looking into branching out from what I am use to and a good overall rod to do that with.
  5. Thanks! I was leaning towards the gsb and happy to hear you're happy with it. I might consider a custom rod. I guess I should look into some local builders as well!
  6. I know this. I mentioned that in my post and also more specifically what I want to do with it. If you end up reading it and have some advice I'd appreciate hearing it.
  7. Hi everyone, I've been lurking on this forum for a while and decided to make my first post. I spend most of time chasing stripers on the fly and jigging the canal. I own several fly rods but the only spinning rod I own is an 11' odm jigster for the ditch. I want to purchase a spinning rod to fish structure that I just can't with a fly rod and also to try new techniques to spice things up for me when I'm not at the canal. I mostly fish areas of fast current like chatham and want something that can handle heavier bucktails/live eels but also be able to cast lighter stuff like sp minnows. I also plan to use it on open beaches in the south shore. Just moved here and want to check out some spots closer to home in the Duxbury/Marshfield area. I know no rod will do everything perfect but I want a rod that can do most stuff decently well until I figure out what I specifically want in a rod. I drive a car and the largest 1 piece rod I can fit in there is 9'. 1 piece is not essential to me and I'm open to 2 piece suggestions but prefer something in the 9-10' range. $450 is my limit and I don't mind spending it for quality and a good warranty but if there is something on the less expensive side that would fit the bill I'd be happy to save the money. Been looking at the star stellar on the lower end and the lamiglass gsb on the higher end. I've also read that the gsb is outdated technology but I've read a lot of things on the internet and looking for some first hand experience. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks in advanced!
