I recently acquired an Abu Garcia 5600 C4. I've really been digging it. I know that it is small for a conventional surf baitcaster, but I'm looking for a rod that can throw float rigs for live shrimp as well as small bottom rigs into the surf. Small carolina rigs and such with light weights. Like 1 oz. I would also throw sub-1 oz spoons and swimbaits for snapper blues, sea trout, etc. 


Right now it is spooled with Trilene Smooth Casting 12 Ib.

Sweetwater posted about the light casting rod they built a while back, might be up your alley.
