Looking at the new kids on the block really. Shimano X7 or X5, Free Spirit Hi-S (12ft Feederlite if they are out.) Map Black edition or Daiwa Tournament Pro 12ft. I feel a bit under-gunned at 11ft, but they quickly step into power feeder rods at 12ft. Which are a bit heavy for this work. Somewhere in between with 1.5-2oz tips. Does anyone have anything new that they adore?
