Aitch, Cantankerous old gimmer with "Views"
- Nov 30, 2015
You'll find a 14' cane rod very heavy and unbalanced... my 13' Sealey cane match rod is very heavy despite being part whole cane... 12' is as far as I've comfortably fished with in cane uses its going to be sat on a pair of banksticks all day... that said.... I use a 16' cane pole quite happily but its a different technique to a rod and reel anywayUp until 4 years ago, I hadn't fished for about 25 years and never that seriously, so haven't got the nostalgia urge that others have to get their hands on that special rod they either owned once, or dreamed about owning.
Having missed the carbon revolution, buying my first carbon rod was a real revelation in lightness compared to the glass rods I had years ago. I would say the only type of rod I would like to own is a split cane 14 Ft rod to team up with my J W Youngs Raoidex centrepin, just to see what it would be like. Price wise I would probably pay up to £60 depending on what it was and the state it was in.
