Wtb wacky setup

It would be easier you narrowed it down a little. 

Your selection of gear is still pretty vast.

Rod action? Length? Model?

Reel gear ratio? Model?

Price range?

My first wacky rig was a 6'6" Medium Action All Pro rod with a Calcutta TEGT and 14 lb Fluorocarbon line.   All Pro was a house brand of Dicks Sporting Good at the time.   I caught many fish with this rig - mostly because not a lot of guys were throwing this rig in 2002 & 2003 ( When I first found out about Senkos AND when I got a bigger boat.   Fast forward from then til now, I prefer MH spinning gear to throw wacky rig baits because it is a little lighter, less wrist issues after several hours of fishing, I get a little more distance and wind isn't so much of an issue and I can skip underneath stuff better with the spinning gear
