Yes sir I’m kind of a rookie to throwing lures and thought this might be an ok setup
you got a wrong reel for throwing lures. Get a start drag not a lever drag and 10' pole is a PITA to transport. I am 5'-8" and a 9' is good but preferer the 8'.

Might want to be pull on a 9ft glass rod to compare the difference. I’d recommend a 9ft parabolic glass rod like a 90J over a 10ft graphite rod for throwing irons. And definitely get a star drag reel. Something like a fathom 25N

I appreciate the recommendations and will definitely be looking into a different rod as for the reel I’m a big fan of the fathom so I guess I will be sticking to it. This is the first speedmaster I’ve owned so I was exactly sure what to expect from it

I’m a fan of the valiant as well so I’ll see if I can find one also I’m fishing down In San quintin later in April so this is kind of what I’m trying to set up for

If you've never caught a 20-30 YT or YFT on a 9 to 10 foot rod...you might wanna try it. Then again, it's not for most people. I'd suggest an 8 foot rod & star drag with excellent free spool. Learn to use heavier line & pull like you mean it. "But, but I'll get more bites on 25lb" You'll also get your drag & line roasted due to Sealions.

Understood the majority of people recommend 9 ft rods and right now so I’ll run a 9ft instead of 10 ft

How well do you cast an 8 ft rod? If you're just beginning an 8 ft rod might outcast a 9 ft rod. The longer the rod, the more technique is required to load it properly. Start with 8 ft and move up as you get more comfortable. Too many beginners try to start with a long rod and hook more rods and ppl than fish.

10' rods are a pain in the ass to move and travel with and when you hook up with a big fish its a pain in the ass
Never fished a 10ft rod so I wouldn’t exactly know but I’ll def. take your word for it as I can imagine the problems that would arise
