I am new getting into the Salmon/Steelhead fishing although been Trout fishing for 50+ years!
I am really looking for a rod I can use for both....at least for awhile. I will be bank fishing alot of the time, but may also be doing some boat fishing in the future.
Primary targets will be Steelhead..both Winter and Summer with some Salmon fishing thrown in.
After reading some of the forums topics it seems that a couple of the rods tend to be referred to most frequently in this application. The G1311 and the X89MTS, both are rated at 10 - 20lb line.
I'm not to up on blank designs and not quite sure the difference between the two except the X89MTS has a Magnum Taper. Not sure how a Magnum Taper differs from the G1311 blank and would really like to understand the differences.
Having said all of that....would one of these rods have a bigger advantage for my stated application?
and........could you recommend one over the other or is there another rod I should be looking at.
Thanx in advance for your help!!
