I just snapped my custom calstar rod that was given to me that was fitted with my smaller AVET MXL MC, rod was a 7'10 MH fast action. Any recommendations on a nice rod that is not to expensive to fit with this reel??? Up here I mainly used it for yo-yoing bucktail jigs and drifting blue gill while bass fishing for striper. I also use it jigging for salmon. Any recommendations would be awesome! I have gotten out of the saltwater loop a little bit since making the move up here and the transitions to bass fishing the delta.
