What happened in the last couple years that all spin casting rods seem to have these extra long butt handles?
I'm in need of a new steelhead, spin casting rod. I intend to use this rod to fish for coho salmon as well. All I can find is these rods with rediculiously long butt handles. If I want a 9' rod, I don't want a foot of it to be in the handle.
Anyone have any ideas where I can find a decent spin casting rod, I will be forever greatful.
