  1. About $400-$500 for the rod and reel together. Thanks!
  2. Thanks for the advice!
  3. Hey guys, new poster here. I've been fishing for striper in the Portland Maine area for the last few years with decent success, but now I think I'm ready to upgrade my gear. I've been using some cheap Cabelas stuff I bought a few years ago, and now I would like to get some good quality brand name gear, but not something that breaks the bank. I mostly fish off the rocks on the coast which can get pretty slippery, so I don't really want to be lugging around a big rod. I've been using an 8', so I'm thinking something in that range, maybe a little bigger. As for the reel, I was wondering if you guys think I should go with a 4000 or 5000 series. I don't need a fully sealed reel because I don't plan on getting into the water much, but something that can take splashes is important. Hope this gives enough context as to what I plan to be doing. Thanks in advance for your help!
