I am new to this, so bear with me. I am looking for the perfect King rod to for casting from shore on the Kenai River. I have heard many people suggest the Kenai Special, but they say that the Certified Pro is better. I have also heard that 8'6" is where I want to be for length, but the Cert. Pro does not come in an 8'6" rod rated for 20#. I plan on matching whatever rod I get with a Shimano Corvalus CVL-400 and Spiderwire Stealth or Power Pro 65 or 80# braid. Any advice would be appreciated.
