Default Re: Differnce in rod lengths

In general, 9' 8wts are preferred by saltwater anglers because they work better than a longer rod to throw tight loops into the wind, create high line speed by their stiffness, and throw more accurate casts.

9'6" 8wts are the standard single handed steelhead rod because the added length helps with mending, reach casts, and roll casts. Added length can also help keep the line out of the water when wading deep.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
