petespeak Posted January 26 Report Share Posted January 26 (edited) I'm looking for the ultimate two-piece 7'6" spinning rod and reel combo for early back bay and estuary schoolies and white perch. Should easily throw 1/4-3/4 plastics and jigs. Many one piece rods are available but finding quality 2-piece rods in this class is a challenge. Reels I'm looking at are the usual top of the line suspects by Shimano and Van Stall in the 3000 size, weigh under 9 ounces with powerful drag and a metal body. The outfit should work in a kayak, boat, or bank fishing. Budget around 500-600, but will go higher for an exceptional outfit with a Van Staal vr50. Stella is also an option but she is an expensive date and and may be too pretty for sloppy sedge banks and mud flats. For a back bay outfit reels, I personally think the new Sustain makes more sense in this situation: upgraded Stradic with better salt water sealing. Rods: Bull Bay, Century, or any JDM that I may not have heard about. Thanks in advance for your input.
