longer rods...

Using a longer rod is NOT a chore IF you get a large enough reel to balance it! That's the secret. If you have a LONGER rod not balanced with a somewhat heavier reel, IT WILL BE A REAL CHORE to use.

Don't necessarily buy a reel for the weight you are casting - many times you will have to look at larger ones. Just make sure it balances the reel with line and backing on, and some line out, as in fishing!
