Default Looking for some new Rods

This is just so the Lami thread does not keep getting hijacked
I recently got 2 reels and maybe a 3rd in the very near future. Custom
rods are not out of the question either. Have been considering the SC Mojo and the Seeker Baby ULUA will consider anything suggested. I'm even looking into importing a AFAW so if anyone is interested we can save with shipping 2 of them. The main reason for the purchases was to replace stolen and broken setups from last spring

Reel 1 is a ZeeBass ZX25 This reel I think I will put on my new Lami XS 101 MS.

Reel 2 is a Shimano TwinPower SW6000 forget if it's the HG or PG(only gearing) TwinPower is basically the Stella body with different gears Reel weighs 14.5 oz and holds around 350 yds of 10#. This reel I think I will get 2 rods for. One for the boat and one for the beach- I may even look into swapping gears to the Stella gears as most parts are interchangable.
The Twinpower is about equal/similar to the Diawa Saltiga Z but with a better drag. Shimano really screws the US as they don't sell some of their best reels here-see this http://fish.shimano.com.sg/publish/c...surf_reel.html

Reel 3 I'm considering is the VS200-I really want to do a head to head with the ZB although I think I'm already biased.

The Twinpower would be amazing on the Estuary

I thought that would be the case, thank you for the input.
Still trying(looking into) to get one. I should know on Monday or Tuesday about cost, I hope anyway
Might grab the Mojo to hold me over
