I have used many other combos that are on the market but the Guide Series from Scheels is by far the BEST. Just look at the specs for the rod and reel and there is no comparison for the money. I bought a 28M and mainly use it for targeting larger fish such as Walleye, Bass, Stripers etc... Highly Recommended.
