What would you buy if you could only take ONE rod and reel set up for an 8 day trip?

Man that's tough.....lol there have been a ton of great suggestions! I think personally for me if it were 2 setups it would be a Calstar GFGR 800MH 20-50 with a Torque 30 or 40NLD2 spooled with 65lb braid and Calstar GFGR 7470H 50-100 with a VISX 16 with 80lb braid , but what do I know, I just like to buy stuff LOL
Slapped a 30 on a 875H... that is an INTIMIDATING rig as I’ve seen put together.

Nice! I DEFFINETLY love Calstar rods lol. there are so many nice rods out now but I keep buying more of them than anything lol, and when you mate them up with some of the new Penn gear it doesn't get much better in my personal opinion.

Your boat, not mine.
ntrepid has excellent "Loaner" rigs all you pay for is line charge. To fill in the gaps in what you will have/what you will need. Just need to let them know ahead of time.

You could catch anything from 20# Dorado up to 200# Tuna!
Do you by chance know what the specs are for the rental rig supplied by Intrepid? That is a helluva range of fish variety! Maybe that is a rig to consider?

Can you be more specific?
Streetnfish has it right. Heavy heavy and every line class below that. Give Intrepid a call they will be more than happy to discuss specifics. My friends Steve and Alice are both going 100% with Boat Gear.

I still Love your idea to get him something special 💖🥰 🐟

They have quality loaner gear available. They just charge for the line fills. They have several sizes available. Just call ahead and let them know which sizes you’d like to borrow.
