Hi,

Enjoy using your new gift.

There are many rods you can purchase to combine with the reel.

I would take the reel and visit your local tackle shop and ask their opinion. Pick several rods, install the reel (have line on the reel), thread the line thru the guides and tiptop. Have someone wrap the line around their hand several turns. Have the drag set properly. Now lift on the rod and see how it feels . Do this on as many rods as necessary until you find the rod that suits you.

Have fun.

Access,

Let me know what rod you pick.

I will have a booth at the NY Sportfishing Federation show in Freeport, Feb 15-17. Stop by and see my demo rods and blanks. I will also be selling blanks.

Maybe someday I can help you with a custon.
