I've been using the same two 7ft Shakespeare Ugly Sticks for a few years (two Penn spinning reels, bank fishing with live perch/bluegill/etc), and was wondering if anyone has used rods with larger/oversized eyelets; if so, do you find that there is less friction at the tip of the pole, resulting in longer/further casting? It kills me when I see the big guys surfacing a few more yards out, and I'd LOVE to be able to get that live bait just a liiiitle bit closer to 'em.
