I totally agree with War Party..better to invest the majority of your $$$ in the rod...those reels will serve you well.

Wrong.

Start with a Shimano Stradic 2500 FI and any 6 1/2' - 7' Medium Power/

Fast Action rod. Reels are what makes fishing fun. On average,

the cost of my rigs are 67- 75% reel/ 1/4 to 1/3 rod.

That's a nice reel. But it doesn't leave him any cash to buy even the cheapest rod at walmart. We're talkin' 175 here.
