which site would sell them? Also I had a look through the list on the Major Craft site and there's like a million different Skyroad models, is there one in particular you have in mind?
First narrow it down to the egi models, from there pick how heavy you want it to be (I find e to be a good all rounder) and then the length as said above 8'3" is a nice all rounder good cast off the bank and not to crazy to use on the yak
I almost exclusively use 3.0 jigs, but I wanted something that would be ok with <40g micro jigs as well. I've tried a green Gomoku rod and tried to use it squidding but it doesn't cast far even for a rod to use from the yak. I don't really want anything longer than 7' on the yak if I can get away with it.
Just looking through the Majorcraft list, maybe the SKR-S702E/TR is the one to go for.
The tiprun rods are designed for vertically working heavy jigs in deep water (usually 10-30m), not really what you're looking for. Majorcraft don't have a regular egi rod in a shorter length. Also I doubt an egi rod that works a jig well will be any good at working 40g metal, should go pretty well for 20g though.
