I don’t doubt the action just think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the difference in holding that compared to a modern equivalent. Have to say I’m well impressed with how you’ve taken straight to a 17ft rod first go at trotting as I don’t thinking could get on with one that long, 15ft is about my limit.
I have to admit the way I'm using it is a bit basic, because of the length I'm able to fish close in without really casting much, so just fishing it like a whip but with underarm casting and then letting line peel off. I think if I had a shorter rod I'd have to cast further so it's ideal for a beginner and the fish seem to come close in where I fish it anyway.
