Help matching rods and reels

Recommended Posts

Greetings everybody, this is my first post on this website.  I've been fishing for many years and I've just decided to get some light/ultralight tackle.  I just purchased a Major Craft BassPara BPS-662UL rod and a Shimano Symetre SY1000FL reel.  Would these two match up well?  If not, I have no problem buying another rod and reel so that I have two well matched rigs.  Any advice greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Sounds reasonable. Put them together and see for yourself. Only you can tell. There's no right or wrong.

I like to use a 2500 size reel for UL, but a 1000 size should do the job just as well.

My suggestion is Don Iovino Major Craft spinning rod, same reel and Sunline Super Sniper green 6 lb FC line.

I don't see any reason for you to change.  They should be a perfect match.
