    I know I know....I am looking for a high end 9' or 9'6" max steelhead baitcaster rod. I have a 10' and its just too much for my daughter. Will be used for corkies and yarn on the Rhonde, etc..

    Get yourself one of the TFO gear rods. Inexpensive and well built. Designed by Gary loomis. Probably be able to buy new for cost of used. I love mine and collecting more.

    Just to toss another option - the shimano clarus rods are great for the money and have an over the counter warranty. You can take it into the place you bought it and they'll swap it out on the spot. Pretty hard to beat in my book.

    I like the Daiwa Viento baitcaster the best - but not many shops have any more of them. Ted's in Lynnwood has a couple.

    Agreed TFO casting rod. You wont find a better rod for that price.

    Yeah, I suggest you look at the Clarus... I fish my Clarus and my GLoomis G2 interchangeably...

    Yup. Have about 20 baitcasters and 10 or so spinning rods. Just salmon and steelhead. Then toss in some trout and sturgeon rods. So yeah I'm a great guy. ;)

    The Clarus also has an over the counter lifetime warranty. I have one for Kings and its a good rod.

    I have a couple of the Berkley Air im7. They come on sale for about $60 bucks once in a while where fishing equipment is sold. I bought a one of their one piece 8' footers for trolling bottom walkers for spring walleye. It's really nice rod for the money. They come in all kinds of actions and best of all I have never broke one.
