    United Composites Spinning Rod Advice

    Hoping some of you UC gurus can point me in the right direction for a rod to match with a Shimano 6000 Saragosa. Something in the 25-50# range to throw lures. Probably put 65# spectra on the reel. I was thinking the GUSA Tilefish Jr. 8 foot might work well but would appreciate any input. Thanks!

    Hollow Spectra to Swivel Connection

    Any recommendations for the best way to connect the spectra to the swivel? One person suggested a large loop in the spectra and then tying a 10 turn double San Diego knot. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Always hate to learn the hard way. Thanks,
