Finesse/light bait setup

Recommended Posts

I currently use a Curado E7 mounted on an MBR 843 GLX with 40lb braid as an all around setup. I am looking for a new setup for throwing lighter baits of all types (basically an all around light bait setup). Im looking at the Core 51MG7 and thinking about pairing it with a MBR 842 GLX. What do you guys think about this setup for throwing 1/8 - 1/2oz baits? Is the 842 a significant step down in power from the 843? Also, how do you think the Core 51MG7 will handle 30lb braid when casting baits in this weight range? Any comments or suggestions for other reels/rods are welcome. Thanks all.

Ok so I know everyone loves their Core 50/51 and I have only read good things about it. However, I am interested in how it will balance on the 842 and also how the 842 compares to the 843, as I have never fished or even held the 842.
