Looking for a 50-60# rod, if I was to use this for both line ratings (50 and 60) would you go a heavier rod or lighter rod fishing full spectra and a short leader?

Right now I'm looking at the Seeker SSR 7660 or Calstar 775H. I like the added length. Hopefully I can bring it on 3-6 day trips in the future

I have a Penn Fathom 40LD2 reel to pair with. Any other recommendations appreciated thanks in advance!

    I have both rods you’re looking at and both are good but I would throw a couple more ideas in the mix. I’m probably going to sell my 7660 because I prefer my other options and it’s just an extra stick right now

    80 UC Predator is a great blank that will fish both. I have a Torque 40nld2 on mine and love it for 60lb

    Calstar 875H is my favorite 50lb stick and will handle 60lb although you can bump to the 875xh for a little more power. The 875H is hands down the best wahoo stick out there
