Long handled budget rod

Recommended Posts

I’m looking for a 6’6” to 7’ budget casting rod that has a longer than normal handle. I often feel the handle is too short on casting rods and want a bit more leverage while fishing. 

 

I’ve been searching a bit but trouble finding anything longer than average. Any suggestions?

Duckett rods have a fairly long handle.

 

Also, check out Falcon Bucoo SR.  Very decent rod for 100-110 bucks, and most are 10.5 inch handle (back of reel seat to rod butt).

 

How longa' handle you looking for? and whatsyer budget?

Nearly every trigger stick type bait casting rod handle is about 14" from butt to the front of the reel seat. How much longer are you looking for?

I was shooting for $75 max and maybe 4 inches longer than usual. Most I have seen are 13-15 inches.

Fenwick hmg has a pretty long handle, I believe the 7ft has a 17" handle.
