Will this be a good rod for plugging (throwing large plugs long distance) for blues from the rocks/coast in Maine? Can't tell if this model has the large guides for long distance casting or not or whether this is some sort of small guide equipped boat rod. Please advise!
The Shakespeare will work for your application. It is a bit on the heavy side though. Also consider the Tsunami Surf rod, model TSU-0001.

So I was looking at the Shakespeare BWS 10' spinning surf rod and noticed that the handle was letter "J" in the picture. I know this sounds dumb but I'm trying to be careful before I buy this. I noticed that the lowest guide on the rod (the only one that's visible in the picture) appears to be really small, like it would be on a casting rod. But I dont know if thats just an illusion from the angle that the picture was taken at or if the guides are really that small. So could you please verify if the guides are sized for a large spinning rod or they're small like it appears in the picture?
Yes, this rod is designed for a spinning reel.
