10’ M Okuma Rockaway would pair nice with that reel for small $$$$

By the way,that is a great reel. Did u buy it used?
The reason I ask is line lay is a bit lumpy.

Okuma Rockaway

10' or 11'

On 10' you have options of 1/2 - 2oz,  3/4 - 3 oz or 1 - 4 oz

On 11' options are 1/2 to 2 and 3/4 to 3 oz

For South Shore I would go with 3/4 - 3 oz, maybe 1- 4, maybe.

Depending how heavy lures you are planing to throw.

Yes I punched this used for 80 bucks 

dude u got a great deal. how did you find this?

 

Assuming you're fishing bait with this, I think a good rod pairing for this would be a 8-9 foot medium action surf rod rated from 1-3oz or 1-4oz. Depends what you're fishing for though and what you plan to fish.

I purchased on a selling app called letgo . And I was thinking about the okuma rockaway rod RA-S-1002MH...please let me know if this rod  may suit well

I assume he's looking for a all purpose rod for baiting and plugging which is a little hard to do. I assume your slapping on the 4000 Thunnus as pictured above which might be too small for trying to do both but a 9 1/2 - 10 ft rod might be where you want to purchase a rod at.
