I have a 6.5' seeker east coast series, (30)#
I use the rod for Blackfish and stripers mostly.
I am also having a hard time deciding on what size(LX or MX) and whether to get a two speed reel or not........ I'm very indecisive
I know I want a high speed retrieve, like a 6:1, but does that make it a struggle to pull in a cow or big ars black? would 2 speed help or would it be a waste of money as a feature I would never use
Part of the dilemma is whether I should expect this setup to be conducive to deep water wreck fishing like offshore cod, and tile / light tackle tuna etc.
Or....... should I expect this setup to be for blacks and stripers and get another in the future for the offshore species.
As for size........ the LX looks better, the MX seems a little small but tolerable and if I am not expecting to use it as a deep water rod as well then I don't think I need more then the MX.
And then there's the initial Accurate vs. Avet question
So......... looking for Opinions here, What do you use and what do you think would fit my purpose best? Don't hold Back!
In the meantime....... I'm gonna read Leps links
Thanks for the help guys
