My Stradic 3000 is currently sitting on a ML Fenwick HMG until I figure out what I want to upgrade that rod to.

My wife and I own a total of 7 Presidents. They range from 25 to 35s.  Two are on G Loomis 6 foot light action sjr721s (1/16 to 5/16 ) and they are used for Ned rigs, lightly weighted grubs, tubes and other plastics.  Two are on G Loomis 6 foot SJR722s ( 1/8 to 3/8) medium action rods used for heavier plastics like creature baits. One is on a G Loomis SR843 It is a 7 foot medium that is perfect for dropshotting and shakeyheads.. Next i have an Okuma Reflections 6' 6" I cut down the rear  area between the split grip. It is now a 6'3" and works light jerkbaits like floating Rapalas and just about any light weight jig perfectly.  Lastly I have one on a Quantum Escalade 6'9" medium that throws a Senco perfectly. It does a lot more but excels at that.

Obviously I like these reels a lot. Sime of mine are less than a year or two old, and some are over 19 ears old. All of them require little maintenance and keep working perfectly.

The only other spinning reels we use for bass is a Shimano Symetre 3000 that sits on an her  Irod Genesis II 7 foot MH Fred Roumbanis signature rod which she throws hollow bodied frogs with.  I got her that reel for its lpi rate.  It matches my tatula Type R 8.1 lpi retrieve.

My 3000 size Stradic jumps between my two piece travel rod, a 7' MF BPS Carbonlite, and a 7'1" MLXF company that can't be mentioned 

My wife's Pflueger Supreme XT is on a 6'10" MLXF St. Croix Mojo Bass. Out of the three rods, this one is my favorite.

I dont have any rod specific for any reel. Depend on what Im going to fish and what reel esier to take out. With that said I have more rods than reels rating from Lite to MH. The 2500  size is good all around reel which I use for anything from bluegill all the way to catfish. I spool my with 20lb braid.
