    Im new to this forum, but I came here looking for help. I mainly Centerpin fish for trout (Salmon, Steelhead, and Inland Browns). I have perfect setups for Salmon and steelhead (5 and 4.5 inch pins) with 13’6” rods. But I’m looking for an inland brown trout float/Centerpin rod. I’d prefer a 10-11 ft ultralight rod that will have good bend with 12-15 inchers, haul in the occasional 16-20 inchers, and not make the 8-11 inchers feel like a minnow. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    build one out of a 4 wt switch rod. you will get the best graphite and action that way.

    Try Nova Tackle Company. The owner is right here in Michigan, he builds a pile of centerpin rods and his prices are quite reasonable.

    Look into a custom build. There are half a dozen builders I can think off the top of my head that'd get you taken care of with a significantly better performing rod than what you'd be able to buy off the shelf.
