I was actually going to remark similarly to Mark and French Creek: 9-weight is really about the best rod weight to go with when chasing pike. You just never know when you're going to drift into the territory of some monster, and when he breaks you off or you can't effectively release him because you were using a rod without enough strength it will be quite upsetting.
