I would go shimano on the reels and If I was going to try a new rod it would be enigma, but their are a lot of good rod brands out there just make sure you match the rod to its application. Such as flip with a flipping stick, crank with a cranking stick, ect. Research and go to the retail stores to find the one that you think feels the best in your hands.

Phlueger president 30 size on a 7' G-rod with 20# power pro yellow braid! This is good to catch anything I want!! Striper, hybrid, bass which it can all muscle in with no problem and still feel the tiny thump of a .5lb crappie!!! It is a game changer for around $180! It's the only rod/reel combo ya need!!!

For everything other than Blue cats I use Shimano reels (mostly Curados) for Blue cats it's ABU 6500 C3 (made in Sweden)
All my rods are Falcon (made in USA) with the exception of one G Loomis rod (very sensitive)
If you want something really special in a rod get with Walker Nelson (Wafflejaw here on the Forum)

I'm having the hardest time finding a 7' spinning G-Rod. That's the longest single piece rod they have. Everything seems to be on backorder

I keep 3 with me on the kayak:

A 6.5 MH with a bait cast for soft plastics
A 7.0 M with Moderate Action bait cast for cranks and top water with treble hooks (Zara Spook/Popper etc)
A 6.5 M with Medium Action spinning for finesse applications (drop shot etc)

Brand is personal preference. I like Shimano and BPS brand gear.

How do you like those rods? They got some good back bone? Spinning or baitcaster?
