Going To Buy A Daiwa Viento Reel, But What Rod?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. This is my first post on this site!

Im new to bass fishing, But have been invited on a bass trip at the end of the month. Ive done a bit of research, and have decided to but the daiwa viento baitcastng reel. But Im having trouble choosing a rod to go with it. Im looking for a light to med action, all around use, quality rod with a good warrany.

In the 100 to 150 range. And it HAS to be a 2 piece or more.

Can anybody throw me some suggestions?

Thanks

I would say a 6'6" MF... but the two piece requirement kinda makes me draw a blank on options

Why you chose a daiwa doesnt matter, im glad you did. Viento is a good reel.what matters is what your going to be using it for. go for a 7' m if its going to bae an all purpose go for mod or fast action. but i would definatley recommend 7'. st. croix, american rodsmith, falcon, powell,e21 all make a good rod. but dont know about the 2 peice :-/

sure it matters to know why the OP is choosing the viento. if it is specifically to take advantage of the twitchin' bar, then i'd suggest a rod with a extra-fast tip. if it's for the nice blue color, then i'd suggest a rod with complementary colors ;D

all kidding aside, i don't recommend to the OP to get a light action rod if you're fishing for bass. otherwise, cabela's XMLti rods are on sale right now for between $90-$100 (normally $180) and are available in a variety of lengths and actions, including a few 2-piece models.http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?id=0030280119418a&navCount=1&podId=0030280&parentId=cat20372&masterpathid=&navAction=jump&cmCat=MainCatcat20166-cat20372_TGP&catalogCode=9IS&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat20372&hasJS=true consider a 7 footer in M or MH action.
