looking for a rod in 14 ft 9/10 to add to the 13 ft 6 8/9 lamiglas i already have. casted the loop yellow 9140 seems like a great rod and the cnd custom in the same size. i feel the loop yellow was kind of forgiving to cast as i am beginner to speycasting. i liked the action is there any rods with similar actions to this rod. picked up the lamiglas 13 ft 6 1358 used but the rod was in great condition. thank for any recommendations. i have learned alot from reading the articles on this website. as far as ferrules go should i use a little parafin wax on the male ends before casting the rod or should i use tape.
