I have this medium lure rod (SBMCX 2.4) 7-35g with a butt that unscrews and a hollow section. Is this for a counterweight and do I need one? Occasionally use this for fishing on the east coast. Any help appreciated.
I'm looking at possibly getting myself a set of 3 big pit reels, and was after some advice. I briefly had a set of Sonik Vader X RS reels and wasn't impressed by them, so I'll likely give Sonik reels a swerve. Options I've considered so far are the Okuma CC 7000 RD and the Shimano Beastmaster 10000 XD.
