I recently moved back to Oregon and am looking for a couple steelhead rods. i am mostly going to fish smaller costal waters no bigger than the wilson, but very occasionally bigger rivers. looking for one drift and one float rod. i prefer a longer 15-17" handle measured from the back of the reel seat to the butt. was looking at the 9'8"imx drift rods, but am also interested in other options. I have a bantam 150, scorpion xt 1500, and daiwa z2020 i could use as a reel. Not sure if any of those are suitable for drift fishing, its not a technique i used a lot. lol. for the float rod I was thinking the imx float with a 2500 size vanford. Any other rod/reels out there for a similar price with similar specs.
