I'd recommend a St. Croix rod, but why are you looking at the 8 ft model instead of the 9 ft model like you are for the other two rods? It's available in 8'6 and 9' lengths too.

Also the 2 piece is $90, but the four piece is $110.

the 3 rods listed are some that i have found to buy.

and shipping would be not so expensive as it is from regular
shops.

other than that, i think an 8' rod wouldn´t be a problem to me.


thanks for your reply, ok?
