Re: what rods do our youth use
The rods I actually use are my 9'6" Reddington Crosswater 7 weight and my
9' TFO 5 weight pro series. I use a Hobs creek reel, for $40 it is an amazing reel, and I have a couple cabelas reels that were $30 but not bad reels.
I have a split bamboo rod that pretty old so I don't use it, an old Heddon 8 weight glass rod, and another rod thats just complete junk so I don't use it.
