I want to get some new rods to go with my new Shimano Baitrunners 4500. I want a a long rod (surf style) for casting clam in the wash from my boat. I am thinking 8 1/2 foot but would go to 9 if need be. I keep seeing these orange colored rods ie. Al Ristori and even in the article on Al McReynolds shows one of these rods. Does anyone know of the make of these rods?
