Basically the rod would get slightly stiffer - but the tip action (provided you cut the right end) would remain the sameWould that affect the action of the rod?
i think u need to change ur cast , most longer rods will feel unbalanced with an oht cast . A 15 ft rod , tip down , butt up eye level weight on beach 10 ft behind u , everything taut and cast , the rod will do most of it for u , no need to thrashOk thanks for a this. So I can try the rod with the reel a foot further up the but and if it feels better like that I can cut a foot off the bottom.
you should be fine if you improve your techniqueYes thanks for that. I picked the rod up today and will give it a try at the weekend with the weight on the ground behind me.
