I donít want to spend a fortune on one as Iím not sure how much Iíll use it, but want a decent one too. Iíve narrowed it down to these. But if someone wants to suggest another in the $125 or less range Iíll gladly consider it too. I have seen others but have not used any by them such as the Skeet Reese rods or Ardent to name a couple.

The 795 is a great rod. Depending on how heavy the rig is the 805 might be better though

Yíall might get a kick out of this. I was going to order some a rigs when I order the rod. But Iíd made some a while back but didnít turn out so well, probably 3 times heavier than store bought ones. The wife saw me carrying the postal scales to the shop to weigh them. She came out to see what I was doing. Said she thought I might have started selling drugs to pay for my fishing habit. Still donít know what they weigh. The flap on the box it was in came open and it fell on the driveway. New battery and it still wonít work.

Ouch.

My wife has resigned herself to the fact that I am addicted and just lets me carry on with my vice.

Mine too. For the most part she encourages me to do what I enjoy. She has jokingly put me on ďAcademy restrictionĒ though... lol
She doesnít know about Tackle Warehouse yet though. 😎
