Re: New Saltwater setup
I agree with theboz.....good reel would be my primary concern. IMHO there are several moderately priced rods out there that will do a commendable job. Many of the moderately priced reels will do OK bit will not handle the rigors of the salt. Take a look at the Colton reels on ebay. I have heard some good things about them. The Sea Level Tempest is also a great reel though a little heavy.
