I built a new 9ft spinning rod for myself by using parts of two scarp rod. The butt part is 4ft 6 from a Surecatch rod and the tip part is 4ft 9 also from another Surecatch rod. I totally rebuilt the tip part and painted it white on the tip for easy bite detection.
I tested it yesterday and it cast very well. The butt part was flexible and this is the most important of a fixed spool rod. If a fixed spool rod the butt part is too stiff, you can’t cast far. It is totally opposite of a multiplyier rod.
I use it yesterday and it start with a catch of a gar fish on a cable car rig when the tide is about to full. The real test will come when it had a bigger hookup. Lets wait and see.
