What's a good pitching reel/rod combo?

Recommended Posts

I'm just trying to learn to pitch, and having backlash problems using my existing reels and rods. (Older Curado's, older Citica, old Abu 5501C).

Can anybody recommend a good reel/rod combo for easy pitching? I want to throw plastic craws about 30 - 40 feet into weeds?

How long a rod, what kind of action, etc. Does the reel need to have a special spool, braking system, etc. ?

Or maybe I just need more practice???

I would get a Curado 200e7, Powell Max 705c, and 50# PowerPro.

More practise , the reels you've got should do the job. The longer the rod the better with a fast/xtr fast action . JMHO

I use a Powell 705C paired with a Revo STX HS and spooled with 50lb FireLine Braid. PERFECT IMO

I think your problem may be your technique..If  your getting overruns all the time. There are a few good vid's on youtube re: pitching and flipping, you can search either one.. :)

No special equipment needed.
