Like probably everyone on here, I have dozens of rods that don't ever get used any more. Yet, I'm always on the hunt for another. Well I recently found the two components to my favorite combo. Tsunami 8' Trophy II spinning rod and Shimano Vanford (the replacement of Stradic) C5000XG spooled with Carolina blue 50 pound Power Pro Super Slick braid. The whole rig weighs about as much as a Big Mac but it's tough as nails. Yet sensitive at the same time. It will haul in freight train drum as well as smaller species like mullet and puffers. I love it. My best buddy picked it up, held it for a few seconds and them drove straight to Neuse to but the identical combo.
