Your favorite 7ft 40lb bait Rig
Super Seeker Greenie 6470 and Calstar 700h. Only 7 ft rods left in my arsenal.
Well this will go against the grain. The reason is it is not expensive, or is it a big name rod. My go to is a Okuma Cortez rod CZ-C-701Ha, with a Andros A-5IIa.
The combo is so lite and comfortable to fish you just don't want to put it down. My opinion like all opinions should be just a starting point. Go check out stuff at a reputable "Tackle store", not some where like Bass Pro.
I prefer 7’6” myself.
Calstar 875h cork special
Penn Fathom 25nld2 loaded full of #65 solid
Black steel 6470 with Avet JX 65# braid
I like my 6470 Super Seekers paired with Avet 6/3 JX and Avet 6/3LX reels. My Calstar 700Hs are a close second.
Calstar GF 700h have two, haven't tried 40lb on my 875h.......yet
Penn Fathom 25nld2 on a Phenix psw700xh. Avet JX 6/3 on an acid-wrapped Seeker g6470.
Truline LM7 w/ Avet LX 6/3.
Calstar 700h with Accurate 600N, does 40/50 just fine.
Lets see, I have 3 favorite 40lb sticks, Black Truline DM7, XR7, & a Chocolate Sabre 670. The XR wears a 25nld2-40lb, Sabre & Dm7 both get Saltist 30t's. Ed
Calstar glass 610 with an Avet HX
700H with a metaloid 12II
Mine is SS6470 with JX6/3 I must like it cause I have 2
7’ is a greenie 6470 and an MXL Raptor. It’s mostly a loaner for me now though as I rarely fish a 7’ rod for 40 or 50 now. It’s all 8’ and up for me.
I'm with Robert, I seldom fish 7' now, but I've been very successful with a Seeker Black Steel Graphite G6470 20-50 using 40# on a TRQ40NLD2. A serious yellowtail and school tuna rig. The reel is mostly on a Shimano Teramar TMC76XH nowadays, it is lighter and casts better in my old age.
'My SS 6470 started out as 7' but I had a few inches taken off the but when it was wrapped. Deckhand style with a daiwa saltist 40ld. Else a 700MH.
