Does anyone use or tried out the Kayak series McCain rods? I need to buy some new rods and I am thinking about giving these a try. I have never used any of the McCain rods but there seems to be decent reviews on the other series. Thanks.

Struggle, I think I had heard Ty Southerland had some input regarding rods specifically for kayakers, but I had never seen them. I watch his videos on YouTube. He's pretty knowledgeable so if he imparted any ideas that were put in, these should be good rods.

If you get one, give us a report.

I have already posted this, that I have "gone short" with two new rods, one each in spinning and casting forms. Mine are St. Croix, 5'6" Moderate power, fast tip.

In both cases they fish like 6 footers since most (4" of the 6") comes out of the butt end of the rods. The accuracy is off the wall compared to longer rods. I still own 7 footer, love them when I am standing, making really long casts, etc., but when I can get so close to my targets in a kayak, other factors dominate.
