That doesn't mean anyone has to use them.

But if someone has a solid stringer and wants to throw a 14" glidebait to maybe catch a giant, they can use an 8'6 swimbait rod if they want, or someone wants to throw a 200XD that I'm sure will be out soon.. they can use a 9ft cranking rod.

I understand where the 8ft rod came from when true flipping originated, but the rule was outdated and was just a simple updating, not too big of a deal and won't affect 90% of the anglers out there
