I'm not new to surf fishing but I want to get serious with my next rod and reel purchase. I want a rod and reel that can do it all. I want to plan some tips for rock fish, drum (red, black, bull). I'm looking at a Van Staal 250 spinning, but need some advice on which Lamiglas rod to buy. I want most of all to cast 2-4oz lures (spoons, plugs, poppers,) and bait (live and frozen) very long distances. I was looking at the super surf model ss 115 mhs dh (11.5 detachable handle). Can anyone give me some insight? O yes, detachable handle sounds good on a surf rod, but what is the main purpose for it?
