I have the same rod, and love it. I am sure there are better rods out there, but for the money, can't beat it. I use 20 lo mono on it, last year I had an okuma reel on it, this year I will be using a Penn Mag 980.

Tica make a decent rod. I have a 10'er, conv., and it's used for heavier stuff. But it's reliable.

Tica's are a bit stiff for plugging (in my opinion) But they make for a great lower $ bait rod. You'll like it.

Aquaman,
I just got it, and have not yet gotten out with it. I did bring it in for a tune up (bought it used off e-bay) and the technician reccommended to replace the drag washers. I can't wait for the spring run!
