Default Surf pluging for Stripers Setup help needed!!

Ok i have been a dedicated NJ surf fisherman for years primarally plugging 4-5 nights a week 8 months a year for stripers. I have been using the same cheap set ups for 3 years now and its time to step it up. Looking for reviews and advice. I am looking to spend in the $400 range for rod reel combo. what is the best for the money. I want something fairly light as i plug for hours but can hold up to the fight of landing 20 pound stripers.

As for spinning reels -I have looked at the Daiwa Saltist SST4500H, Emblem Pro-A EMP5000A, Exceler 4500t, Shimano reels love them for the weight but dont know whats good for the surf.

For Rods - I have looked at Team Daiwa-S 10", Saltiga Surf 10" MH, Team Daiwa Interline Surf, St Crox Mogo Surf 9" MH


I just fish, i can tell you all about every type of plug and how and when to use them but as for the rod and reel could not tell you very little. Just looking for long casts, durable, smooth, and light!

Please Help

Take a look at the AFAW estuary, Lamilgas super surf as well as the Lamiglas GSB series all great plugging rods.

Actually only the Super Surf's are around $400. The Graphite Surf and Jetties which are built on the GSB blank are around $200. The AFAW estuary is also around $200 if you can find one. You should also look for used rods on craigslist and the BST on this site

How about a Mojo Surf MSS106MM2 =230 + Penn Battle 6000... 100.00

Out the door a quality combo and eventually you can upgrade the reel if you want...
