Default Re: 8WT Rod Suggestion

I picked up the St. Aidan as an NOS (new old stock) reel. Its probably from the 70s and never been used. Came with a spare spool as well. The thing with my shoulder is this. I broke my collar bone in three pieces, had it put back together and then could not use my right arm for about 6 months. Shoulder locked up so now, I do not have full range of motion anymore and hours of constant movement, like casting, kill me. I want the benefits of a longer rod with a heavier line but I am weary of the weight penalty. A long, heavy switch rod in one hand arrangement will be too much for me in short time.

Maybe I should go two handed and not worry about a switch rod at all...
