Your 8 rod tournament load
« on: February 26, 2007, 08:29:57 PM »

If you could get a light tournament load of 8 rods and reels what would you pick up? I would wind up with the following.

G.Loomis rods/Shimano reels
7'5" BCFR894 flipping rod/Curado 200DHSV
7'1" BCR854 jig rod/Curado 100D
7'1" BCR853 jig rod/Curado 100D
7'1" BCR853 worm rod/Curado 100D
7'   CBR845 crankbait rod/Curado 100D
6'9" SBR813 spinnerbait rod/Curado 100D
7'2" FGR863 frog rod/Curado 200DHSV
6'10" SHR822 finesse rod/Stradic MgFA2500

This is what I am working on expanding my arsenal to. I actually just purchased the first on my list; the flipping rod and the Curado 200DHSV.

Brand name aside I'd try to get 6 baitcasters and 2 spinning rods/reels that felt similar from one to the other and were very comfortable.  Right now I (like a lot of other guys) don't have 2 rod/reel combos that are even similar.  I'm talking reel seat/trigger, reel, handle setup (split/solid/no front grip) and weight.  I finally found a decently priced baitcasting rod that I really like and that's the Diawa Tierra.  They're about $50 and have fuji guides/reel seat and a bunch of size/weight choices.  I picked up a 7'er with some christmas money and love it.
