Thanks guys for all the info....a little bit clearer info is i will be mostly bank and tube fishing in large size ponds and the coves in lakes...lots of vegetation and around 15-20ft max depth. Looking on spending around $200 on a rod/reel combo....im liking the 7'0 MH Duckett Ghost bc academy has them for $99.....i like the KVD reel 7.0 ratio for $79 if anyone saw it. Leaning towards the 15lb invizX redline Fluro.
I would go with the Falcon BuCoo, it is a much
better rod than the Duckett and only $10 more. The reasons being is the blank Falcon blank is a higher modulus and therefore more sensitive, and the components are quality Fuji's. Where the Duckett has stainless steel guides that scratch much easier and then start shredding your line up. Also the quality of construction on a Duckett is laughable, particularly wrapping of the guides. Duckett makes a few loose uneven wraps of thread to hold the guide in place and then uses a gray tape to secure it before being epoxied.. Tape. Really?
I make custom rods and repair rods and I see Ducketts in for repair all the time versus rarely seeing any Falcons.
For the reel I'd highly suggest a Shimano Caenan 150A for $99, or any Shimano for that matter.
$10 more than what you proposed but a much better setup. Tackle Warehouse carries both with free shipping over $50 and I believe you get a free T-shirt at that amount.
15lb InvisX is a great line choice for Tx rigs. I'd suggest running a backing of a cheap line and using a blood knot to about 50-60 yards of your flouro. This lets you "respool" 3 or 4 times on the same 200yd spool. saving you $$$
