What do you want to use the rod for??  Specific technique??  All around, general fishing combo??  What's your budget??

A reel that fits your hand well, with good bearings.  You don't have to spend a lot, maybe 75-100$.  Stay away from the cheap stuff, if possible.  I use several brands which are rigged differently.  Rod, 6ft med. action is a good choice, I think for general usage.

I really like my Garcia XLT and Falcon rod with 17lb Big Game for all around use.  I wish they still made the XLTs.

Remember the fish don't care what reel, rod or boat you are using. Line may be a different case!

Grab a BPS Pro Qualifier BC reel, and for the rod check out either the indestructible Shimano Voltaeous, or the Clarus

Since you like the Daiwa, I would say try either the Exceler or Tierra in a combo. Cabelas has the Exceler and Cabelas Fish Eagle II rod for around $130.

Just ordered a Exceler off ebay myself to try and just have to figure out a rod to put in on myself.

Good Luck
