Rod/Reel options and questions
I have a penn 6500SS as of right now. I really started getting into shore fishing last summer and this reel didn't give me any problems. I have been looking at the Daiwa Emblem Pro series reels. It looks really nice, as i want to have a really good set up this summer. If i buy that reel which is 139.99, what rod would be a good casting rod? I don't chunk baits, mostly just cast plugs and live eels off a rocky point. I need to be able to throw a plug real far, haha as far as possible. What sort of rod do i need, ie,,, how long, what type, how much money? Also on my Penn reel i tore it down and i noticed it doesn't have a disk drag system, its like a rubber washer that gets mashed against the spool, is that right? allright to sum up, is the daiwa a good reel? what rod should i get to maximize casting distance?
