I'm seeking a 9-ft, 2-piece surf rod for light lure casting, with my now looking at the Lamiglas SS9MS rated for lure weights from 3/8 to 2-oz, and the Lamiglas XSRA 1083-2 rated for lure weights from 3/8 to 1-1/2-oz; both rods are described as Mod/Fast action and handle 12-20 lb test. I'm looking for a rod that'll allow some relatively long-distance casting with the light lures, being as non-tiring as possible to use while making many casts over a period of a couple of hours while walking the beach. Most of my surf-casting will involve throwing plugs, metals, bucktails or grubs in the 1/2 to 1-oz range (e.g. 1/2-oz TT Mirrolures, 3/4-oz Rat-L-Traps, 3/4-oz Windcheaters, 1/2-oz leadheads + grub, 3/4-oz bucktails, 3/4 to 1-oz Hopkins, 1-oz Jackie Jigs, 1/2-oz shad darts, etc.) on 14-lb Fireline, pursuing speckled trout, puppy drum, Spanish macks, schoolie stripers, tailor blues, shad, pompano, etc. from Delmarva to the Outer Banks. Which of the 2 rods cited above would you most recommend for such use, the SS9MS or XSRA 1083-2? And might you have any other ideas that would be even better for such purposes?
