7'1"MHXF spinning is my fav rod i have. Id give it up for all others. Basically my laker rod. That XF sure makes a huge difference in 60+ fow from the bank. My 7'0MH is under quite a load that far out. Works great for smallies but i cant seem to work the spook quite right with that rod. :/

8 or 9 wt. flyrod...get an extra spool for the reel so you can have a sink tip line as well as a floating line... 2x to 3x leader and tippet on the floating line...no need for a tapered leader on the sink tip, 0x to 2x tippet will be just fine.

For me it's the Phenix UMBX-707H 7'7" 10-25 3/8 - 1 1/4 oz. Such a versatile rod, especially for bigger game fish.

For wiper and pike in particular, I would highly recommend going to a longer rod, mainly for casting distance. With those two species, covering a lot of water is the name of the game and you get the most out of a longer rod. It's also nice for fighting bigger fish as long as you realize you have more leverage.

Would seven inches really make that much of a difference?
