Junior , I've thrown 13 and even 15' rods in the past but the little bit of extra distance isn't worth the extra weight and air resistance in my book. 12' is plenty long enough and strong enough for even the biggest fish; imo. also as I get older, I'd much rather fish lighter tackle. Just saying, 5 - 10# drum on a trout rod with grubs are a lot more fun than one 50 pounder on a big heavy stick with an 8 ounce sinker to me.
