What is the best rod, reel and size line for small top water baits?

Don't know if it's the best, but for smaller topwaters I use a 6'6" M Falcon Lowrider & Chronarch 50e 6.3:1 spooled with either 12 or 15lb Big Game. Hope that helps, good luck!

My setup Falcon Lowrider Salt 6'9 pair with a Shimano 50Mg7 7.0:1 rato with 12lbs Big Game. Cast 1/4 baits really well.

I use a 6'9" veritas on a Revo S reel(6.4:1) spooled with 30lb braid. I use a no slip loop knot.

For throwing Zara spook type baits I will use a 6'6" to 7" medium heavy bait casting rod and 20 lb monofilament line. 1/4 oz poppers I will use a 7' medium spinning rod with 20 lb braid.
