Default rod: lami xs96mhs w/704z.. opinions

Lamiglas XS 96 MHS Graphite Surf & Jetty Spinning Rod

9' 6'' 2 1 - 3 12 - 30 5 Fast

got: 704z(hopefully bailess soon).. 30# fireline and a plug bag that mainly consists of stuff in the 1.5 ~ 2.25oz stuff.. like tins,med poppers and maybe some 5" swim shads. all around you can say.

been searching around and seeing most pair a 704z with a 10ft rod or bigger. i'm not that tall and more comfortable with a smallish type rod. used a 9ft w/spheros for a while and caught decent fish so i don't think distance is an issue.

what i would really like to do is go to a shop and physically try reel on rod. problem is no shop in SI stocks this rod. anybody locally can recommend a place ny/nj i can go? i'ma lami newb.. recently slinged an arra a couple of times and was hooked.

thanks for the help

Soke head over the outerbridge south on the Parkway exit 117 then Route 36 towards the hook.
The Tackle Shop is on route 36 a few miles down on the right.

I have that exact setup and it's perfect for plugging around the jetties and the Hook.

The only change I'd make is to go to 20# Fireline for general plugging.
You might want to keep an extra spool with 30# in the car for the big fish pencil popping days that are just around the corner.

thats exactly what i needed to hear.. .

got a spare spool(black) on the way. i'll take your advice and try the 20# mainly, and the 30# when i go bigger.

also gonna ride out to the tackle shop on sunday and hopefully pick it up.. thanks for the help fellas..
