Does anyone use graphite rods now? Seems everyone I see who makes a recommendation seems to go with Lamiglas or some other variety of fiberglass.
I use graphite on my trolling rods because they're both light and stiff. I can rip the lure without having the rod absorb all the energy. Yes, I have several "old" glass rods that I favor for casting, but they're real slow on the action for me.
[Or, do you think that I'd be okay if I got a much heavier glass rod?]
Give me a few opinions here. It looks like I'll be incarcerated in my home by the snowy weather again this weekend! Sigh... _________________ Mark-O
