Need a new rod.

Recommended Posts

Like the title says. I am looking for a new rod. Must be multi-technique capable. Plan on throwing 1/64 oz. to 5 oz. lures....maybe a tad heavier.  Money is tight.  Retirement out of sight.  So I'd like to keep price at $43.67 or less. Also what reel and line should I use on this rod? Willing to spend more on the reel. Say $43.79 tops. Know where I can find a $446.92 reel for this price? Would 4# Vanish work? I considered 2# for increased casting distance, but my eyes aren't what they use to be. Well they never were good so......

Anyway give me your best options. Thanks.

Almost forgot.  I like longer rods.  Looking for maximum casting distance.  Looking for a rod between 7' 7-3/32" and 7' 7-5/32".  Don't want any longer because I don't flyfish.  Although I would love to if someone wants to take me under their wing.  I already have the rod....a 7' 3wt.  Just kidding on the rod.  I'd prefer to use that for Tarpon.   My bass flyrod is an old 8wt GL3 9 footer that has never seen water.

I say buy one of those new "Dial-a-Technique"
rods "As Seen On TV"... you know the one with
the technique ring on the butt end of the rod.

Frogging, dial it to D. It'll be heavy power.

Drop Shot. Dial it to DS, ML power.

Cranking - CR and so on...

Research shows that rod would work except for one minor detail.  The longest rod offered is only 7' 7-1/8" long.  A whole 32nd shorter than desired.  Any other options?

No, not unless you can work with live graphene 
cells that can rearrange on electrical charge to 
what ever length desired...

Good luck with that. Probably have to raid Area 51
for the raw materials.
