    I am trying to find long bass rods. Seems that 7’ is “long”. I’d like an 8’ or more one piece worm rod. A 9’ small swimbait rod.(2 oz or less) Here is the real kicker.... a medium or medium light rating on worm rod..... any suggestions? I can’t even find blanks.

    At those lengths, I suggest looking into surf rod blanks for the small swim bait. For the ultra long worm rods, look towards salmon/steelhead blanks. Lamiglas is a good start.

    Rogue Rods has a 7'9" swim bait rod rated 12-25. Great quality rods.

    I'm not sure how accurate the information is but I think I read some where that St. Croix was bringing out some longer bass fishing rods so you might check their website. I have several of their rods and love them including a 2 piece 9' 6" med. light spinning rod that was a salmon/steelhead rod I converted to a Smallmouth Bass rod years ago for throwing float-n-fly rigs.

    I checked out the St. Croix rods myself and suggest you look at Legend Tournament Line of rods for what you described if you are looking for a spinning rod. Their casting rods go up to 9'11" but are heavier action. Best of luck in your search! :-)

    My favorite worm rod right now is my first gen shikari 8'4" casting rod. I also double this rod for throwing weightless bass assassin jerk baits when the bass are holding the shore line and chasing shad. I have a Cumara that is 7'6" ml that I use for worms, senkos and Ika's that I love as well.

    Phenix has the Trifecta series made for Salmon/Steelhead. They have 8', 8'6", 9' models that are rated #4-10, #6-12, #8-17. They are available as a blank or factory rod.
    They also offer Trifecta Lite series only as a rod. It uses the same technology as the Feather series blanks. Check them out.
