Revo Sx 7:1.1 Need Advice On New Rod ?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone-

 I recently got a new REVO SX 7:1.1 as a gift. Now i need a rod to keep it company. My options are limited to what my walmart has.

          

               1. Berkley Shock Rod.

               2. Abu Vendetta or Vengence(cant remember).

               3. Shimano Sellus.

 

Ive never had a reel this light and compact.What would your recommendations be of these 3? And what would you use this set up for? Thank you all for your time .

If you go online, Walmart has even more options including an excellent deal on the veritas microguide rod for 70$. I have that rod and it's awesome. Super light and well balanced. I have it paired with the gen 3 revo s.

Keep in mind that any Abu Garcia rod or reel comes with a no questions asked 3 year warranty. Three years of peace of mind is nice.

whats the budget

 

veritas would be my 1st choice for 70(ship to store)...cons,,,,none in store, you can bring your reel to dicks/bps/etc and see how it looks feels....cover the reel's feet with tape because it may scratch from the nut on the reel seat

 

vendetta will match well and feel balanced...its supposed to be factory balanced to the revo....I have a gen 2 revo and gen 2 vendetta but I put it onto the veritas instead even tho it looked sexy

 

Shock is the least expensive, may be a bit heavier than the other choices but you can bring your reel into the store and see how it looks and feels..Id rather this than the vengeance

 

Sellus is pretty decent, didnt know they had them at walmart. I had a crank bait rod once upon a time

Vendetta for sure. Most of the "old" vendettas are marked down now, so that's a plus.

Vendetta. You can always upgrade later. The vendetta will serve you well. And like the others said, it will look awesome too!

I highly recommend taking the reel you have and trying it on several rods. It makes a huge difference in the feel

This is true. The feel of the bps carbonlite I bought last year was totally different on the bps carbonlite rod than the veritas. I went with the veritas because of where the reel sat on the reel seat.

Use the Walmart cards for your groceries, then take your grocery money and go to BPS, Cabelas, or wherever. Opens up more options.

We are not assuming he has money to blow, just swapping the value of gift cards for the same amount in cash.

which he already stated that he was spending it on fishing tackle.

You're okay, and a citica is a great reel. I am sorry if that came off sounding condescending or critical.

I sure did not mean it that way

No you aren't, I didnt mean to sound like a d-bag towards you nor the other poster I quoted. I overlooked that part of him spending money on baits, mainly because of tears in my eyes from my broken rods. Lets all carry on.
