Suggest a rod!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, having always wanted to try an OH setup I finally took the plunge on a recent dinga deal for a Biscayne lever drag 20 reel (supposedly 420m of 30LB at 10.8kg drag). Now I need a matching rod!

Can anyone with experience suggest a few rods in the entry level and mid level price ranges?

Would be used for trolling for anything and dropping livies for kings.

Also would be chucking braid on, so potentially more capacity if the 420m of 30lb is mono.

 

Thanks guys!

Tossing up between 5'6 10-15kg or 15-24kg

Two very different rated rod classes there mate. 

Your described use would suggest the heavier stick might be overkill?

@DerekD has kindly suggested the Shimano backbone series. They have both 10-15 and 15-24kg. Will go 15-24 to give a higher ceiling should I move to some heavy duty application (will prob end up with both).
