I just got that 6,6 St. Croix Lite Power Fast Action rod. Then, I went to Dick's to buy a reel for it and found a nice Okuma on sale...the Status GT (size 15). It's a pretty nice reel, 9 bearings and it feels very smooth...original price of $60 on sale for $30. But, the guy at Dick's was trying to talk me into buying a nicer reel, like a Pflueger or Quantum. I always thought that Pflueger and Quantum are lower quality than Okuma. He was saying that if I'm getting a $90 rod, then I should spend at least $90 on the reel. How's this combo look (and has anyone ever used this rod/reel)? Also, is a size 15 reel a good size for a lite action rod? Thanks for the help.
