Hello my Forum friends and neighbours. I am looking for a G Loomis NRX 14ft rated 9/10 or 36g if you prefer to deal in those new fangled gramme thingies. Looking for the green rod please if you have one. Reply here or in PMLand.

I am looking for a Zpey switch rod 11' rated for 18g or lighter.
I have an 11' 20g HM Signature and love it, but would like to get one that is rated for a lighter line. The one I have can cast just as far as most 13' rods.
