Hello all, I'm going to the RI saltwater sportsman show next weekend and planning to purchase either a Lamiglass GSB 120-1L (1-3 oz) or bump up one size to the GSB 120-1M (2-5 oz) and wondering which to pick--keep going back and forth, as I've never actually held one in hand. Wondering if anyone can provide any "first hand experience" from actual use with either of these two rods. Might even consider a GSB 9' one piece in the either power L or M. I'm planning to use the rod fishing beaches, jetties, flats...etc. around Falmouth, Massachusetts. I might even venture to other spots around the cape, such as Dennis, Barnstable, Sandwich...etc.. I mostly like "light weight outfits" that are more fun to cast as opposed to being a chore to lug around. Also. most of the lures that I throw tend to be from 1.25 oz SP minnows to needlefish (1.5--1.75 oz); and poppers, swimmers (2--2.5 oz). Also like to use soft plastics 7"--9" hogy or Sluggos types...etc. Haven't even given a thought yet to a reel....but do have an "old Green Penn 710 spinning reel" that I've had since I was a kid (long time ago--haha) and may put that on just for fun (hardly used it--still like new). Open to opinions on a super light weight reel that might be nice on this rod as well. Thought of Van Staal, but they're a lot of money and hard to reel...and will not be swimming with it....maybe some splash or "accidental fast dunk" (but will try not to). Many kind thanks to all who reply in advance. Rob
