I bet a good size speck or red would be real fun on a glass rod. What is the cost of building that rod? I’ve been curious about building my own, do you have any recommendation of books, website or other resources.
I bought one of the CGR 7/8 glass rods for a sit-down quick-shoot kayak rod.
Went through my arsenal of salty lines and found the rod would handle the leader and any line in close, was temperamental for shooting line, but did everything right with my Airflo slime line. I could have the belly out on the 2nd stroke, and shoot twice the belly on the 3rd.
More testing nailed it down with a 200-gr Teeny spliced shooting head, and went searching from there for the perfect floating line. Found it in Cortland Saltwater Guide WF7F. I can repeat the 3-stroke drill and get line out to 70′
