Rod and reel suggestions (again)
Posted by FISHN Man on Apr 06 2006
I know this has been run into the ground, but I've never seen the answer I was looking for. I'm looking at getting into a bait casting setup as it seems the guys using them seem to get the most fish (bank fishing for kings). I've done some homework and have found that the new Abu Garcia Record Mod 60 reel to be the best new equipment out there.  Voted editor's choice on several gear rating sites.  My problem seems to be matching this reel with a rod that won't kill my arm after casting for 8 straight hours.  Those (almost) 9 foot rods seem too awkward/heavy, especially if it gets combat style out there. So, is there a good med/hvy casting rod anyone can recommend in the 7-8 foot range?  Ok, I'll also say that I'm struggling with at least trying a braided line too.  The new Spiderwire Stealth line has good reviews, is more rounded like mono, and is always sold out when I look for it (50# anyway).  Any and all input is greatly appreciated.
Thanks all
