RIght now IFaL has a 50 size Shimano, which is way too heavy and unbalanced for this rod. TEh rod is the XH, which is an ideal 80# bait rod, comparable to teh Calstar 760M. Teh "problem"is the rod Erik has is abotu 8oz lighter than teh Factory CAlstar, adn teh 50 is not a good match at all. I thought a 30 would be good, but even that might be too much off balance.

Would one of hte 2 speed Accurates make a good chunking set up? Teh rod screams for a smaller reel with a lot of drag with enough capacity, I'm jus tnot sure which one.
