Normally I'd say something stupid in a thread like this, but OP's got it locked up like a vault.

Ripping 100' casts on elk? Don't think it's needed or even possible.

Dear board I don't fish Pa tribs, only new York and am thinking Canada next year...so a rod that cast 100' will be needed.

if I fish pa tribs I would think I would use a 8' or shorter rod.

Possibly,,I don't venture over to Ontario but a couple times a year at the most, usually in late Nov, early Dec. and once in a while to Oak for browns.
Mainly fish the Catt in NY because it's close and Grand in OH when the snow starts flying.
