Im looking into the BL6630 or BL7030, the rod will be used for livelining bunker and chunking for Stripers. I have an Avet MXL 5.8.
My question is,,,does the 15-30# class rod have the punch and backbone for good size fish?
Should I go with the heavier 20-40# (BL6640 or BL7040) rod?
A couple months back (at a tackle shop) i put that 5.8 Avet on the 20-40# class rod and the grip seemed really thick and somewhat heavy for that little reel. The 15-30# felt right for that reel.
I want to go with the 15-30# but i dont want to be under-gunned either!
