match rod

  1. General Outdoors Discussion
    I bought a 12' match rod for 2-8 lb. line, long years ago from Cabela's. I never did figure out what reel to use with it. The first (butt end) guide has only a 5/16" inside diameter, a bit small for spinning, I think. The long cork butt has no reel seat, just sliding rings. Guys, what do you think?
