Hey guys, I've been combing this forum and all over the web to decide on the appropriate rod to bring to mexico this December. Right now, I've got it narrowed it down to the Daiwa Ardito 11 foot or the St. Croix Triumph travel 9 ft. My plan is to use the rod from the Cabos beach to fish for Sierra Mackeral, Jacks...whatever swims. From what I understand, people throw 2-3 oz poppers/lures/ rangers out there. For that purpose, will the 9 ft get the baits out far enough? I just ordered a Daiwa BG5000, which is what I will be pairing the rods with. The thing holding me back from the Ardito is the heft and the small first guide ( which some people say isn't too big a problem). I know there is a 10 Ft St croix triumph, but I don't think I can get my hand on one. Will there be a worthwhile difference in the casting distance between the 9 and 11 ft? Thank you y'all. As someone with barely any surf fishing expereince, this website is a wealth of knowledge, so I appreciate your input!
