I fished Cowlitz for Springers lately, with moderate success. I have used 9ft rod for most of my corkie/yarn presentation, but it appears to be short sometimes, due to those extra-long casts. The rest of my 9'6" rods are simply lacking backbone for hooksets in a strog current. I have quite few medium-powered rods (including XMG 9.2 spinning), so it would be justified to go for something heavy/medium-heavy.
I started feeling a need foreven longer drift rod, that can throw 1 oz to 1.5 oz weight with long leaders, etc. Having float fishing also in mind, I was thinking about Dave Vedder model X 106 MHC.
Is this rod good option for me?
