I'm planning to purchase a 10'6" rod. I'm not sure if i should get the medium action rod or the medium heavy rod. I usually cast 1-2 oz lures/poppers. The medium heavy can accommodate string sizes up to 25 lbs whereas the medium rod can only accommodate 20 lb line. Will the medium power rod cast alot farther than the medium heavy? I'd like to get the medium heavy so i can increase the line size but i dont want it to affect the casting distance.

The St Croix Legend 10'6" is a nice rod. What you should look for is not really so much the line class but the lure weight. If the rod handles a heavy lure or weight it'll probably be pretty stiff and won't load a light weight well in a cast. Pick the lure weight class that best matches the the size of weight you intend to be casting. I think 1-2oz is a bit light for surf.
