hey guys, this might sound like a silly question..but.. I have a rod that I like a lot for light surf fishing.. its a balzer 10ft spinning rod 25gr lure.. as you know 28gr is 1oz so, my rod lure rate is like 7/8oz, its really nice on 1/2oz lures like luckycraft and sebiles, but on mild windy days I cannot cast at all on those weight and I will need to use some on the 1oz rate or Krocs / castmaster tins, well on those cases Im above the lure rate and always with the fear of snapping the rod, so Im thinking to cut 3" or maybe 4" from the tip and make the rod 1 1/4oz or 1 1/2 oz lure rate, would that affect that munch? I really dont want a 2oz rod cuz I already have one of 8.6ft, I just want to be able to cast 1oz lures without the fear of snapping it. any recommendation? PS: the last quarter of the rod is really thin, I called it my XL bass rod.
