Re: thinking about a second rod
Yes that was my assessment as well. I'm fairly small and a little leery of too long a rod not only because of the weight and leverage it exerts on an old guy but the worry that length equals a relative loss of backbone.
I thank you for the offer, I'll keep it in mind...not dismissing it, just that it's a little longer than I had in mind.
Probably should have mentioned my length druthers in my OP...sorry.
