Thanx

this will primarily be for bass fishing i suppose. leaning towards a medium action rod. nothing too flimsy at the tip. and just want a reel that is a little more heavy duty or made better than the cheap ones i have now. i have a pflueger baitcaster actually. $90 dollar combo at Dicks. haven't used it too much yet as i'm not near as comfortable with it as i am the spinning reels. i don't have a problem with it backlashing but just not happy with the casting i'm capable of yet.

Spend the majority of your money on the rod, thats the most important piece to the combo. Typically most spinning reels are not that different in how they fish reguardless of price. As long as the drag on the reel is good, youll be in good shape.

As far as rods go, Id suggest a bass pro brand rod, I like the bionic blades and tourney specials for the money.
