Question what rod and reel combo

Hi, I'm new to the forum.I just purchased a spheros 14000AF new for a good price.I was thinking on using it on a 11' 1 to4 oz surf rod for casting bait and weight. Then i'll use the 750 ss on a 9' 3/4 to 3 oz rod for casting plugs and tins from the beach and rocks.Last putting a penn BTL5000 on a 8' rod i use jetty fishing.Do you think these combos will work good for intended uses. Thanks, I got razzed for asking this on another forum, but i do not fish the rocks and jettys that much.

Thumbs up Re: what rod and reel combo

Sounds good to me. I have actually used a 9 footer with that same reel for throwing bait on the beach and the jetties. Served me very well as I remember. The 11 footer is a bit much I think, I used to use a 10 foot Ugly from the beach and though it may not sound like it, it gets heavy after a while. I was more comfortable using the 9. But you will see what works best for you once you actually start using them.
