Steelhead Salmon

I need an 8 ft., med/hvy rod rated for 8-12 pound test. Anyone?

I'm looking for a 1 piece rod, fast action but will settle for a med. action. It has to be 1 piece and braid capable. I'll be using a reel that holds 180 yards + or - of 8-12 pound diameter power pro braid. Cost is not an issue. I'll be using it for inshore fishing for fish under 50 pounds. I just got tired of searching the internet so any one with some real info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
~ what's the deal with the thumbs down? Every opinion is respected here so keep your thumbs to yourselves. It's like that.

l'm not too sure... it rather looks like a steelhead/salmon rod may suit your needs. most major rod mfgrs have them.
that's in the area of what they're rated for although there are many somewhat lighter.
there may be yet a few salmon approaching 50 pounds that these rods were designed for.

after thinking on it, perhaps these won't work for you. salmon rods are generally softer and more limber.
that's pretty much the same thing, ain't it?
more parabolic.
