The CC Canal is somewhat specific as it's very similar to my FW wading days. Most often the back cast is limited. You need to make distance but the structure around you can limit that. Most people say are not using anything much over 12' because of surrounding obstruction. Then there's the type of baits/water column you are trying to hit.

I may back off the Century build for a 2 or 3 to 5-6 oz rod. We'll see as I get prices.

A have a 11' surf rod coming this week that would fit for 1-3 oz (plugging) that should work quite well that has the rings that will take conventional or spinning. I will be using that on the canal, and would take a second rod for heavier baits, jigging. That's the target I would be trying to hit with the Century build. If I wasn't concerned about guides and reel mounts a St. Croix Legend or Mojo will fit fine. And I may just go with that. Thing is I reallly want to use the Tranx (retrieve speed). Would have to buy specific seat style with St. Croix.
