Being that I am a poor college student, if I spend the money on a really good rod and reel I will have zero money left for any baits. Does anyone know of a good all around rod and reel (sold as combo if possible) that I could purchase for not too much money. I'd like somethin that I could use for T-rig, C-rig, cranks, jerks, and spinners. Ive got 3 rods and reels but most are old



5' Abu Garcia light spinning rod

5'6" shakespeare medium action combo with spinning reel

6' Daiwa (feels like medium action but info has worn off)

Zebco 33

Quantum Longstroke QL3 spinning reel

well nothing at the moment but I could prolly afford about $50 total. And by the way, is any of this stuff any good (aside from the Zebco, it has given me trouble since day 1)?

You buy the reel, I have an St.Croix or 6 laying around you can have. They are all spinning. Let me know what length you want and action. Get you a reel and your set. Ill fix you up with some line also, Braid or mono.....

St.Croixs are a little different than most other rods actions. My favorite is a 6ft med. I mainly river fish though. Thats the one I use most of the time. I have an extra, its yours.....
