Thanks for all posts on this topic. I'm still trying to sort out the best fit for the following situation: bank fishing, fish rarely over 20lbs, some fairly fast, heavy water, many other fishermen so can't fool around getting fish to the net, 1-3 oz. floats (typically use 2 oz wt.), 20 lb leaders, 30-40 lb braid line, soft baits (eggs, shrimp, etc.), medium casting distances, casting rod only. I'm less worried about cost than function for this rod. Some ideas I've heard/seen: G1348T, XCC1064, X90HC, X10MHC, X110MHC. Any suggestions to help me sort through all the choices, given what I've outlined above?
