I was out on the kayak and all of a sudden the reel feel off my rod and into the water. Luckily I was able to catch it by the line but the rod is done. The handle seat that holds the reel on broke. So no I am looking to get a new rod to use for plastic worms. I am looking at a g loomis e6x casting rod 7'1" med heavy. The reel I have right now is a abu garcia black max that I will be upgrading after a little while. Is this a good choice for texas rigged worms from my kayak or should I choose a different rod? It is a little more than I want to spend but I would rather have a good rod that will last.
