JC -- Give me a call when you get to MTH. I think finding a rod/line marriage is really important. For me overlining at least one weight is usually optimal especially because a lot of shots are at 30-40 feet and require an immediate cast. Some of the new stiff/fast rods don't seem to flex until you aerialize 30 or 40 feet. See if you can cast different rods with different lines (and weights) until you find a match that works for you.

Re rod models, like the others I wonder about the newest and greatest every 12 months. My favorite rods are oldies (i.e., Scott STS (15 years old), Sage RPLXi (15 years old)) or local low price brands no one hears of outside south FL (Biscayne).
