I have a 15 foot Shakespeare, I went up from a 13 foot and yes they can feel OTT to start with, but after a few trips I got use to it and now wouldn't go back to a smaller rod, just give it more time to get use to it

There’s so much choice and I’m still dithering around, now looking a Penn Rampage 14’ the cheapest being a 80-120g @ 72 quid and the next 14’ 120-170 is £135, my question is how much further would a 6 oz lead get me over a 4oz And is it worth paying the difference just for 2ozs? I’m planning on coupling it with a Penn surfblaster 3 lc8000.
In my area the south coast the tide can run quite hard so I tend to use a rod 6oz – 8oz, but on big spring tides a 8oz will just hold bottom, most of the time I'm using 6 oz weights but with large baits
