  6'6" to 7" ML or a 6' L
  Posted by: Big_D on Mar-29-12 1:23 PM (EST)
 

I like longer rods for two reasons. First, you can usually get more distance in your casts. Second, they have more give when you get a larger fish on and so your line isn't as stressed as with a rod with less give.

I don't like UL rods generally as they have very little backbone for hook sets. Also, they often are very short. Short and wimpy is not good for a fishing rod, in my opinion.

I used a 6' L and a 5'6" UL for years for trout and panfish. I greatly preferred the 6'L.
