I've been a long fan of the Ugly Stick Combo, but I think it's time for me to move away from it. I'm looking to get suggestions on what I should get. I want to be able to use worms, crankbaits, and spinnerbaits. I don't want to spend more than $120 with reel. Any suggestions on what I should get?
You would probably want a Medium Heavy or Medium rod with a 6:1 gear ratio on your reel. I would say for a reel you can't go wrong with a Abu Garcia Revo S and if possible a Shimano Curado. I'm not an expert on rods but a MH Shimano Clarus 6'6" or 7' should be fine. I hope this helps.
curado will be over the budget. hmm if you can spend a little bit more you can get a better setup actually a lot better setup if you just save up 80 dollars more. citica reel clarus rod and plus shimano is having the deal where they have the rebate for the citicas. $170 should get you everything ask Slemos(Jim Sr.).
can't go wrong with a clarus. Revo or citica would work for the reel.
