Default Re: what 6 weight for smallies

Just some rehash of what I said in the past about short vs long rods for bass.

If you plan on making shorter casts (those within 45 feet or so) with a floating line, it's hard to beat the short rod.

If you plan on casting a variety of distances with a variety of line types, you should err towards the long rod.

With that out of the way, I cannot comment about the St. Croix rod.

Here are a few rods that you ought to cast:

Premium (over $600)
Hardy Zenith
Hardy ProAxis
Scott S4

Mid Price Point
Sage VXP
Scott A4

Lower Price Point (Under $300)
TFO BVK
Redington Predator

There are other good rods out on the market. Others will mention them.
