Re: New Rod?
TFO Finesse series may work for you. I tried one out at LRO and it is definitely slower. I ended up with the pro series because it's a little quicker. It never hurts to go up there and throw one. Heck, Daniel may even clue you in to some good spots. Let us know what you end up with and how you like it.
May you fish more than you wish for.
