Hi socalsalt,

You are talking about a small stream slow action rod and you think it should cast more than 50'?.. If you are looking for a distance rod the TFO Finesse rod may not be a good choice. You didn't say what weight rod you are interested in or what is your target fish. Kind of hard to help you if we don't understand your situation. The Finesse rod is built for a particular application and you can't expect it to do things it was not designed to do.

So lets try again, what weight rod are you looking for and what will you be fishing for. Your price range would also help.
