Any spinning rod will do fine for saltwater, just match the action of the rod to the size of the fish you hope to catch with it, and the amount of line of a particular weight you can fit on the spool, which is relevant to how/where you fish, and if the fish you catch might be big enough to run off a bit of line while it tires out.

Rod length affects casting distance.. surf rods will usually be in the 8-11' range to get your lure/bait over the rocks and away from a jetty or pier.. dock/boat rods will be a bit shorter.. let's say 6'-8' for a spinning rod

if it's not too crowded, i've caught many a fluke, bluefish, and striped bass from the beach, jetties, and piers on a 10 footer.. but if it's tighter quarters, 8'-9' will really cast just fine. To give fishing a shot to see if you like it, one of these 7' rods will be fine for a pier, but you'd have a hard time getting a line out as far as you'd like to from the surf line, or over jetty rocks. You can always upgrade to a quality larger setup later, and someone will be thrilled to come with you and use your "old" rod when you're a bigshot!

If the fishing line is too tough will it be able to detect the bite because I have a 40 lb line on a rod and I never know when I got a bite.

Try braided line, it has zero stretch on it, making it easier to feel bites. If you are doing that to set the hook, use a 2-3 foot monofilament leader on the end of the line. I like using a barrel swivel between the braid and leader to prevent whatever lure or rig from line twist.

I, generally, go trout fishing along streams, brooks and rivers. I use, exclusively Daiwa MINI-SPINS (if you remember them) in 4 1/2 - 5 foot, two piece, rods. Perfect for casting around trees and hooking the occasional lunker, as well. It can be tough to use in the Spring when the water rushes.
I, also, like to go bass fishing in the lake.... with a current. In that case, I use a 6 - 7 foot medium gauge rod.
Hope that helps.

Your advice is good.
Two-piece rods are inferior to one-piece rods.

If you don't need a 2-piece, buy a 1 piece. However, it is difficult to fit a 1-piece rod into a honda civic. For "side of the road" fishing, a 2-piece if perfectly acceptable. Also, at $15 for a rod/reel combo, this is a moot point.

Agreed, I have a VW Jetta, so anything over 7 feet needs to be 2 pieces...which is perfect for when I finally find a 14 foot rod on sale. No point in buying short 2 piece rods if you don't have to.
