I would like to get one of this series to pair with an AVET MXL for long island sound stripers/blues....I want a 7' rod, 15-30 line weight, with a gimbal butt end. It looks like the BL 7030 CGH or BL 7030 CGH-SP are the only options that come with the "2" handle, but I can't tell from the catalog what the material on the "2" handle is. I read somewhere that it is a graphite handle...but I've never seen a rod with a smooth graphite butt nor does it sound like a good solution. It looks like the "4" handle has a gimbal end and a foam butt...but it does not appear to be available in a 7' rod.
Any help would be appreciated.
