On Christmas I got a new Daiwa Tatula Type-R 100xs with an 8:1:1 gear ratio. I am looking for a new rod and line to accompany the reel. I would like to be able to use this setup in just about any situation with multiple things. Lastly, I am trying to keep price in mind.
There are many good rods for sale that won't break the bank - Bass Pro sells many.
By this time so long after the initial post I assume you're already fishing with this reel. I'd be interested what you matched it to.
