    Hello BD,

    What reel would you recommend pairing with a 6' Seeker American Series. Off the top of my head I believe it's rated 30-60. Just not really sure what I can possibly use this rod for. I don't think it would handle a brute BFT. Thank You. Tight Lines!

    That’s a short 30/40 # rod! A fathom 25n with 50# braid would serve you well

    No just the old school ones that got discontinued. Got it at least 10 years ago as a kid and i’ve only used it for rockfish

    You may have more luck in the fishing chit chat Forum for this question, especially now since fish are on the chew and guys are looking for good reports in this forum. Nobody cares in December usually but right now guys check this one to get hot intel before they dump all of the wad on fuel for the trip.
