I have a deckhand model 800L and would like to know the length/combination of lengths needed to bring the rod closer to a 40-60 rating? I’d prefer it be at least 7’ still, but overall length not as important to me as the rating. If this is possible
I’d like to have the rod rewrapped with a new handle. Any info much appreciated. Thanks

Get a calstar 700h if you want a 7ft rod in that rating. You wont achieve what you want cutting it down. Its just going to cut a perfectly good rod, while calstar already makes a 7ft 40-50lb rod.

If you want to cut it, youre going to have to cut the tip almost a foot, but cutting the tip will affect the action, and power will most likely be affected as well, and it will not do what you want it to do.
