You will have to specify a budget and what you want to target.

Hi,

No budget in mind but nothing too crazily priced. Looking specifically for the matched rod for these reels.

Targeting edible's/non edible's

Blue Marlin rods also not badly priced. I recently got hold of a mint condition Exage 110H old spec rod and what a beaut she is. May be an option for that SL30 you have ;)

I find it much easier to do it the other way around. But those reels I would use as follows: SL30SH for scratching and long casts fishing light 3-4 Oz. SL50SH for targeting a bit larger edibles and with the larger line capacity the occasional smaller flat fish or so wont be an issue so look in the 4-7Oz range and the torium 30 I fish pretty much flat out and is way more versatile than any of the other two. Fish it light, fish it heavy doesn't matter. Awesome reel, I've used it on a 12ft elbe wavemaster scratching for bronze bream in the bricks to sliding whole bonnies with a Poseidon 36T heavy, put carbontex washers in it though.

That is my opinion and others may see it differently though;)

Hi Guys, sorry to hijack this post. I am also looking for a good quality rod to match Penn Clash 8000. I am wanting to be able to improve my distance mainly. I will be targeting mainly Blu Fish (bronze Bream) and also the odd Pignose and sizable Kob. Where I fish i need a bit of distance and am just not getting it there. Budget is not an issue. I have been looking at 13" Waft. Is this a good option? Am I correct in thinking - longer rod = further distance? Thanks
