I have been particularly impressed with the Extreme combo from BPS. It is a 6.3/1 reel and I use the 7 foot MH rod. It is comfortable and very sensative. That is my worm rod. I like the Crankin stick for crank and spinner baits. It has nice backbone and a fast tip to really load up the rod for lighter baits. It is a combo graphite/fiberglass rod. I like to use that with the old Spider cast SC500 reels but can't find them anymore.
