Hey everyone,

Im kinda new to these message boards and to Muskies Inc for that matter. I came to the February meeting and the seminar at cabelas the other week. (Im the guy,with the ponds that were being discussed for the possibility of raising muskies in) Unfortunately I couldnt make it to the last meeting and to the Marsh Creek Cleanup because i just started a new job.

Anyways, I am looking for a new rod and reel combo and could use alittle help. I want a rod and reel for throwing bulldawgs primarily. My idea was the new Musky Innovations split grip 8' 3" XH rod paired with a Revo Toro NaCl 6.4:1(I can get one for 150$ off a guy who never used it)

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks, Evan

My personal opinion would be a tackle industries xxh 9' rod paired up with a diawa saltist if you plan on using it jsut for big rubber baits. Great rods and the reel is built like a brick s*** house, plus it does 35" per turn, which should be 5-6 more than the NaCl.

Good suggestion Lenny. Evan $150 for that combo isn't a terrible deal!

Evan, I'd go with that reel for the price. Look at okuma, both 9'3 rods, I have one for mag, one for lbers are priced at 129.99, great rods, metal on tip too.

220...., 221...., Whatever it takes.
