any suggestions on spinning combo

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to buy a spinning reel combo. My price range is 200 to 250 dollars. I want a big faced spool with a 7' m-mh rod. I want this reel for finesse fishing. It needs to cast a 1/16-1/8 weight fairly decent. I want it to be as light as possible but durable. Give me some setups that ya'll have personal experience with. Thanx!

My favorite spinning combo is a Shimano Stradic 2500 FH and a G Loomis SJR783S GL2.  I fish everything with this combo and it is my go to rig when beating the banks.  This setup cost me around $250.  You could get a longer lighter action rod for your setup.

Soon, I plan on buying a 7' spinning combo for finesse fishing and the rig I am looking at is one of the new 2500 Stradics and 7' MF G blanks spinning rod.  This combo would cost closer to $300 but I think it would be a great finesse fishing rig.

One of our members picked up a Fenwick Techna AV

on Amazon for around $75. If you can find an AVS70MF,

that would match up perfectly with a Shimano Stradic 2500FI.

Relative to my Crucial, I didn't appreciate the Techna AV (7MF Casting) until I tried jigging with it. I liked it so much I ordered another (66MHF Casting):

At $78 including shipping, it's a great deal. I figured it was worth risking Amazon. Last time I price-matched at my favorite etailer, but this time they didn't have the same model in stock. Every so often Amazon will have a great deal on Fenwick rods - the deals disappear quickly. I called Fenwick to confirm that Amazon is an authorized dealer. Cheers!

To stay in that price range you might look at a Shimano Symmetry 2500 along with a St. Croix avid rod.  I bought 4 Avids last winter when they were on clearance.  I like them as well as my Gloomis spinning rods and they are a lot less expensive.  I use the 6.6 medium action.

At 120 bucks it is a little below your price range, but I really like my pflueger president+bps extreme combo.  It has done great.
