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!!
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.
