Looking to get a conventional setup going for next season, for chunking large baits, tossing big eels and plugs, any one point me in the right direction

I use a Daiwa Sealine X 10'er with a 6500 Abu for eels and plug up to three oz's. And I have a Tica 10'6" rod I use with a 7000 size Abu for larger plugs and big eels.

I've recently fallen in with the Abu 7000i C3CT Pro Rocket
I can only imagine how far that reel would through on an AFAW 13'

If you want to do large plugs as well as bait the 12' AFAW USA rod would be an excellent choice

Bait, large plugs and eels do not go together
You can do bait n large plugs but a rod that will do those well is going to be much too heavy for eels.
A general plugging and eeling rod, that could do light bait duty, like the AFAW 11' Estuary, will not do heavy bait very well.

Other choices would be the Lami XS 101 MS
and the new Legend Surf series just put out by St Croix - sweet, sweet rods

I use just about the exact same. My tica is only 10' though.

Great minds think alike....And so do we!
