I am a Northern California resevoir, lake, and pond spin fisherman that only casts from shore. I have been fishing for bass and trout for several years, with medium to medium light spinning gear, but only recently am I getting a little more serious in my rod and reel selections. I have been fishing for mainly trout now with an ultra-light spinning reel, but my 6'-6" medium light rod is limiting my casting distance and feel with the ultra-light lures. I am close to deciding upon the MBS 702 UL rod, but the only thing holding me back is the lure weight rating for this rod of 1/8-1/2, as noted on your website. This seem like a rating that is more like my medium light rod, and not an ultra-light rod. I am concerned this rod will be too stiff to cast ulta-light lures (1/32-1/8 oz) any kind of distance. Please let me know if the lure weight rating was a misprint on your website or is your 7'-0" rod really an ultra-light rod? I appriciate your recommendations.
