Well for the switch rod have a short head
The 13'-14' class have a mid-belly line
The 15'+ class a long belly line
The bottom line is if you start allowing people to use whatever they want this and that it will cause the competition to last like 8 hours. If you just have the same thing for everyone, they step up, cast it, and are off, next guy comes up and takes the rod it will go a lot faster. Plus nobody will be able to say well he had a better combination, this and that...
It's all about fun is what the idea of it was supposed to be. At least that is what I was told when the idea was first brought to light so this way it just makes it all about having fun and not worrying about what rod/line you are going to use...
Another thing about rods/lines for the competition is that I feel we should only use equipment from companies that are going to be at the event...
Just some ideas I had for rods was:
Switch Rod: Thomas & Thomas 1107/3
13'-14' Rod: Winston BIIX 13'3" 7/8
14'8"+ Rod: Guideline LeCie 14'8" UK Spey 10/11
Those are 3 sweet rods from companies that will be there in full force...
