Longer rods provide excellent control when float fishing, allowing longer drifts and better hook sets. The Sheffield DRII 13' 4" float rods are an ideal choice for the salmon and steelhead float angler on both the Great Lake tributaries as well as the West Coast rivers and streams.
I've only used this rod a few times but it feels like a hyped up noodle rod. It's too heavy for the pound test it's rated for and one of the guides is already loose at the wrap. I liked the "custom look" of the cork handle but found it to be too thick in diameter for a long outing. I'm guessing that the rod is durable but I don't believe it's worth the price.
