6 posts in this topic

ok guys.. i really need some help here.. my son will be 8 in may.. he's decided he wants a rod of his own.. i'd like to get a custom built for him but want to spend as little as possible since his interest is still VERY sporadic.. some days he will sling metal for an hour non-stop (even if fish are not biting) and sometimes he still wants to build sandcastles when they are jumping on the beach..

 

anyway.. to give you an idea, he can cast a 2 oz sinker over 60 measured yards with a 9 ft daiwa sealine and a spinning reel with 12# mono..

 

i'd like something he could cast 3/4 oz metals up to about 3 oz with ... thoughts? can't decide on length even.. he's spent most time using 7 footers from the beach but gets much better distance with 9' WHEN his timing is right... do i get an 8 footer or a 9 that he can "grow into"..

 

help?

I may be small... But I'm slow!!
