Look for a flyrod you can borrow so you can actually try it with the flies you intend to use before buying something you might not like. I suspect you'll be able to cast clousers (lead eye, not beadchain) and conehead buggers, but maybe not well enough to satisfy you. If you like the length of the fly rod but don't like the location of the reel seat, there are long ultralight spinning rods (noodle and crappie rods) that might work better for you.
