well i have a 8ft eagle claw spin rod its a medium and have a abu spin reel is this ok for bobber for steel head? do you guys have any preferences under 150? or would some one sell one to me?
He's got it right on the money with the Lamiglass. I use a Rock Creek Series IM7 9'6" 6-10lb with a Okuma Aria that I've caught many winters on the Alsea and summers on the Santiam with it and it handled them all. I bought the rod and reel on seperately but it ended up costing me around a $100 total. I'm in college so cant quite afford the Loomis yet!I've got a Lamiglas G200 that's a 9'6 for 6-10lb that is works well for me, matched with an Okuma Epixor. Got both on sale so the setup ended up costing me $80 when said and done, but the rod usually goes for $70-80 and with the remainder you could even go with a Symetre on the reel and stay around $150. Watch Fisherman's adds for sales, G.I. Joes, too.
