Looking for an 11 footer for throwing the light stuff far. Has to be 11 foot, custom or factory, 1 or 2 piece. I’m flexible. Something rated at 3/4 or 1 oz and up.


ODM, Century, CTS... let me know what you have.

Might have something for you. I had a spinning rod built from Chris Aubut of Aubut custom rods. It’s an 11’6” spinning rod, two piece spinning. I had it built for strictly plugging the canal. All black alconite k guides, black wraps and black grips. Reel seat is 28” to the center from the butt. X flock grips on the butt section and foregrip. I think it would fit your needs perfectly. Rod is in perfect condition, no scratches,dings or nicks at all. I can send photos of via text if your interested, let me know Matt.

I have a custom 11' CTS S8 used about 5 times in mint condition wrapped by RH Customs Rods. Two-piece 50/50 split, 1-3 oz. rating that "Bombs" lures out there......this rod can also toss 1/2 oz. bucktails with no problem.....

I have factory Lamiglas GSB 11LS. Rated 1-3oz. It's a moderate rod. You can go as low as 1/2 oz and up to 3.5 with it. Great condition.

Thanks . What blank is it and rod rated 3/4 or 1oz- 3?
I thought canal rods were usually heavier 2 or 3+ on the low end.

It’s a Florida angler blank. Made by Steve Austin who made the AFAW years back. It’s not a beefy blank. It would throw 1 oz to 3oz no problem. 3/4 oz it would throw but it would depend on the reel and line combo your using. It’s a beautiful rod  though.

Interested in the S8. How’d you like it? I understand it’s a pretty stiff, fast action rod. Would you ship to Long Island and if so, how much?

 

any pics of wraps, grip, etc.?

Very fast action.....but i found that it could do alot more than previously thought.  Again, although not optimal, i was able to work 1/2 oz. bucktails and metals just fine.  I paid over $500 for the rod and am willing to let it go for $425 shipping and handling included.  This rod is basically new only used 4, 5 times at the most.

 

I can get some pics to you in the next day ........ i'm currently away but should be back home tonight............
