if you're asking about choices between a M or MH rod to put your new reel on, i would personally pick the MH for the baits you've mentioned.

Ok, I finally found the rod you are talking about at the BP site. I would definitely go with the medium heavy and 10 pound mono.

The set up may be a little lite for the technique you wanted to fish though. I would go with a 1/8 ounce worm weight, 7.5 inch worm and 3/0 straight shank or tru-turn hook. This rig will catch you a ton of bass..

You will be able to cast better/easier with the 10 pound mono and the over all sensitivity will be better too.

I went and checked them out.  If your certain that's what you want, go with the medium/heavy.  Stay with 8-10 test line.  It'll work for ya.

1. Both Medium and Medium Heavy Power will work just fine, but for lighter weights the Medium Power will make casting much easier.

2. Fish big worms Texas rigged with a 1/4 ounce weight.  Texpose or skin hook the barb.

3. For jigs, the NetBait Paca Chunks will be fine.

what size jig should i use for the netbait paca chunk with my medium heavy spinning reel the rod is 7''  and i wanted to try  somthing new with a plastic worm as a trailer.

it can hold lures to 14th oz to 5/8th oz so what the best size jig to use for the 8''worm and the best size for the netbait should i have the 6'6 inch rod or the 7'' im  ordering it tonite

A fundamental part of learning to fish jigs is the ability to feel

the "normal" weight. Anything different is potentially a bite. So,

to help develop this "feel", I suggest using one weight only. A

universal size is 3/8 oz. On this size jig you can use a number

of trailers, but the Paca Chunks will be just fine.

If you insist upon being stubborn, the 3/8 oz. jig will work for your

worm trailer, too. However, if you have done any of the reading I

suggested to you, there few articles (as in none) that recommend

using a worm for a jig trailer.

This is where you start:http://www.bassresource.com/beginner/beginner.html

Then read everything else in "Fishing Articles" at the top of this page.

After that, "Tacklebox". This section has numerous listings specifically

dealing with jigs.

Here is an overview written by Joe S :

If you want to try this kind of Jig/worm trailer try this it works for me:

Jig HEAD ( not a dressed jig) 1/4 ounce this is one of 3 types I use

Venom Shakey: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/catalog/item-link.jsp_A&_DAV=MainCatcat20166-cat410008&id=0053816122745a&navCount=3&podId=0053816&parentId=cat410008&masterpathid=&navAction=push&catalogCode=QX&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat601233&hasJS=true

Use a Zoom Trick,Mann's Jelly Worm ( 6 inch) or my favorite for this 7 Inch *** Ripple tail worm

These catch fish very regularly in a few ponds, especially in front of weed lines or on submerged rocks and logs

6'6" med action does the trick with this type of lure

RW I often use a 5 3/4" worm for a trailer on jigs. Of course my technique is different than the normal jiggin technique. I use the 5 3/4" Zoom Ultra Vibe Speed worm as a trailer when I am swimming / burning a jig. This technique has caught me hundreds of bass when everyone else is throwing a spinnerbait.

Of course I throw this on baitcasting gear, but I am sure it would also work using a spinning setup!

This guy is just starting out, so staying with traditional presentations is probably the best course.

Lots of guys used "undressed" jig heads for a variety of baits and presentations: Many types

of worms, tubes and grubs to name a few. A shaky head is just another configuration of a

standard jig.

But back to the issue. For a traditional jig, chunks (plastic or pork), craws and creature baits

are most common and very productive. Using a 8" or 10" worm for a trailer is "fishing a worm"

not a jig.

RW you are correct and I also agree with The_Natural hats off to everyone who has posted. Everyone has there own price range, and skill level.

My advise is if you aren't purchasing online go to your local Bass Pro and have them get you both models set-up and buy what feels best to you! I would also stick with 10 or 12 pound test for all around fishing and if you purchase at the store they are usually kind enough to spool your reel up with BPS Excel line if you ask "free of Charge!" Not all stores do this but I the one I frequent does everytime! Two years ago I took my little cousin who was 13 years of age at the time to purchase a Wally Marshall spinning combo which was on sale for 19.99 and they put the line on it for him no questions asked! As far as lures and techniques go don't be afraid to try something different, sometimes it pays off, but RoadWarrior is right learn the basic techniques first. They are time tested and everyone knows they catch fish. Good luck and I hope you enjoy your new combo.
