A perfect match

For that reel is a 6 to 6-1/2 ft graphite rod with a med. to med. heavy rating with cork handle.
As for which brand that is up to you,as the reel is only 50 bucks so you could probably find a good match with a rod in the same pricerange.

A matching Shimano rod is about $130.00, it all depends on what you want to spend, happy fishing

Rod...

Nice little reel you have yourself.

I would match it up with an ultra-lite, 6 ft rod. Look for one with a fast or x-tra fast taper. The fast action will help alot with setting the hook when using lures.

If bait is you choice then you can go with a slower taper.

Take a look at the Shimano Compre line of rods. They have one that would be an excellent match to that reel...

Good luck
