Looking for a rod to throw 2-4oz jigs from a private boat. I like the Graphiter series, owning two of them, but have never fished with a rod longer than 7' I understand that the 9' and 10' rods will get you distance, but from a private boat perhaps that much distance not necessary and not worth the added leverage given to the fish? I'm thinking an 8' or 8.5 model, the problem I having is that the Catstar website does not include casting weights. I think I am leaning towards the Calstar GFDH-850M, fished with 20-30lb. Primary use will be Albacore and WSB, rockfish as an also. Thoughts form the experienced welcome.
