Rated 5 out of 5 by IndianaOak Good rods Bought these for an upcoming trip for smallmouth, nothing like a big smally on an ultralite. Grandson will have fun too!! Rods cast very nice with the ultralite reels I paired them with. May 29, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by BigDoc53 Lighter than I like This is a great feeling rod. It is a little lighter action than I was expecting. I used it three days last week catching bluegill and shellcrackers at Dale Hollow. I missed several bites until I got used to the action. May 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by livenkickin great rod for the price I bought two of these rods. Mine is the 6'. I put a 4# reel on it and took it to work on the river. This rod can really cast out far and the action is fantastic. I caught several bass on it. I am only sorry that I didn't get me another one. I have priced this rod at other places and they are really expensive. Thanks Basspro for the great sale on this rod. May 21, 2012

Details:I just ordered from the web exclusive email and I'm curious as to which fresh water reel I should pair with this rod (6'6"). I'm debating on either shimamo or browning, but other thoughts are welcome.
A:You can't go wrong with either reel.
While the Browning is probably made by another manufacturer and their name hung on it, the maker would still make a great reel. Shimano is,of course, a basic manufacturer, so they brand their own.
With the rod you have, a medium weight reel spooled with about 8-10 lb test line should perform well with any species.
Just be mindful of where your fishing.
Weeds, heavy grass, or stumpy water would be better to use heavier line.
