I'm about to buy a new rod and reel for swimbaits. Anybody have some experience with any that they really like? Considering a few different reels including the REVO Beast.

That will depend on what size and weight swim bait you are planning on throwing.

Dobyns 795 swim bait rod with a Lews super duty 5.4-1
Loomis 8ft salmon rod with a Daiwa Luna 203
Falcon swim bait rod with a Daiwa luna 253

I've got a few Abu Garcia toro beasts. Can't go wrong there. Any descent 8' or fast rod that's rated up to 4 or 5 oz. Will work, ive used a dobyns 795, I like those.
