    James,

    Agreed, casting practice/experience trumps rod choice. I just think it's easier to cast a fast-actioned rod in the wind, and they are a superior fish-fighting tool esp. in the salt. There aren't too many moderate-action saltwater-specific rods out there. I agree the distance/fast action thing, it's totally over-hyped as well most fishing w/ a single hander, even in salt, is at 70 feet or less. A. The rods you suggested are all good ones as well.

    Best,

    -John
