what is the best spinning rod and reel available
I am looking for a great spinning rod and reel. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking of a Shimano 2500 Symetre reel and a loomis 7′ medium heavy pole.
YIKES!!! This is so vague!
in general, not species specific, for me, it’s …..
GLoomis GL3/IMX (not the GLX – too many times have I seen those shatter from being so thin walled…it’s not worth the $50 I have to pay to get it back from Loomis warranty service), Rainshadow RX7/RX8, Rogue rods, St Croix SCIII / IV, Lamiglas Certified Pro, and honorable mention to Fenwick HMG/HMX/AV
Shimano Saros, Symetre, Stella, TwinPower, Stradic FH-not the new one…
Daiwa Z-CU, Steez, Capricorn A (not that orange XTC crap from Dick’s Sporting Goods), Advantage, Spinmatic
Quantum EPTi – still think it’s too heavy even though I like it….
