What length Egi rod to buy?

Post  Plastic Piscator on Tue Apr 10, 2012 9:02 am

I am about to buy an Egi rod and see they come in lengths from about 7' to about 8'6" but they all seem to be about the same rating of about 3g to 6kg.

Can someone advise the different circumstances you would use a longer or shorter rod, or is it simply down to personal choice and comfort of use?

I use between 8'3 and 8'6 the longer ones are suited for shoregame. If u fish from a boat more often then the 7ft ones would be more suited. As a good compromise 7'9-8'1 would be good. There are a few companies that make 9ft rods too.

Thanks Andy, that's all I needed to know.

I've just placed an order for an 8'3" Shimano.

The longest one - the 8'3" model - I think the model number is 832LB

They should have longer ones I had a 862 ci4. But the 83 should be good too
