Hey just a suggestion, you dont have to have metal guides for copper. When I started fishing copper I thought you had to have metel guides..
But you do Not
I use the 8' rods at northwoods that have the yellow tips.. they are like $14. I use them for my copper, lead, and dipsys. And yes I fish salmon alot!!! I have used these and the ceramic guides hold up with no cracks or grooves any questions let me know. Good luck..
