some reading and i get the idea the smaller rod is only good up to 20 feet deep, why is that, capacity on the reel? the size of the smaller reel seems better balanced

any rod will do the trick in about any depth of water. 50-100 ft is no prob with UL reel spool.

maybe go with a mediumlight rod but i wouldnt worry :)

these rods come with a reel, almost like the longer rod but would want the smaller reel maybe

the video on the Swish website say the smaller version is for 50 ft. or less.

100 ft. is only 33 yards the smaller reel could handle that with ease.

thanks that should do it easily

tip is in the parts section, strange place for it.  looks like the longer rod in the part section is cheap enough to add that incase i dont like the short rod setup
