I’d probably buy a new Shimano reel and maybe one other type. All for comparison purposes. That Diawa Tatula I bought a while back is a terrific reel, and I’d see how it compares to the Shimano, and maybe a Lew’s or an Abu.

For one Combo for $500 I would buy a 7' 1" MH Fast St. Croix Legend Tournament rod with a Lew's BB-1 speed spool.

If buying Two combos for $500 I would buy 2 Pro Qualifiers with different gear ratios and then either St. Croix Mojo bass rods OR Carbonlites.

Buy several rods and pair them with equal amount on 2 reels then spend rest on line and your favorite baits!
