Default Re: 8WT Recommendations

With the Bay and larger tribs for 99% of situations I like a fast rod. An 8 on the bay chasing rockfish is one place I like boomstick fast. The wind can be quite harsh and the stiff rods, if you can cast them, can help when longer casts are required.

An 8 (or even a 6) is better suited to the summer schoolies on the bay also. In the spring and fall/winter you may feel a little under gunned with an 8.

That cpx at $129 might be my first non USA rod. That seems pretty sweet. I've seen some Link's under $200 also. I think it would be almost impossible to not get $129 worth of use out of the cpx.
