Default Rod Recommendation for Avet Pro EX 40/2

Hey guys and girls...

I'm new to these boards...great reading!!

I picked up an Avet Pro EX 40/2 at FHS. I'm looking for recommendations for a comparable rod. I want to use this reel for heavy dropper loop and yo-yo fishing. I'm thinking 80 lb hollow spectra with 60 lb top, and was considering a Seeker 6465H to go with it...any suggestions?

I'm on a 13 day at the end of the year, plus a few shorter trips between now and then...Thanks!!

Actually, if you are going with 60# then yo shold go with the 6465XH(SS CJBF65XH), 40(60)80 vs the CJBF65H 30(40)50

Calstar glass rods you could consider a 610H or 660XH.

Or a GUSA Predator. J.AkuHed, you still have one acid-wrapped?

I'd go with the 6465XH.

AkuHed is right--the 6465XH is the way to go for 60# rather than the 6465H.

But what kind of dropper looping you talking about? For dropper looping on the fall trips, generally you'll want 80#, if not 100#.

I use a Seeker 6465xh with that reel for bait fishing the bottom (like dropper loop but I don't use a dropper loop) for yellowtail. And I like it. It's an "upgrade" of a 6465h that was used with 50lb. I built the 6465xh to better accomodate 60lb topshots (on 80lb braid).

It's too big and heavy a reel for me to yoyo with, I'm yoyoing with a 6/3 and 50lb.

At Guadalupe Island I've used Calstar 660xh and 765ML dropper loop fishing with 60# mono and a 2 speed reel. I like both rods for that purpose.
