I like a rod in the 7'3"-7'5" range as that allows me to get maximum casting distance. I prefer a heavy, fast. You really need some power for those deep water hook sets. As for the reel, I like a 6.2:1 gear ratio. That seems to be the right one for me. And the line, I like 16 pound Sunline Shooter.
