Great reel. Using 40lb braid it casts like a dream. Feels well balanced when realling. Very smooth actions. I use this primarily for stripper fishing. I have it married up with a St Criox Tidemaster 8' MH one pc and used a Berkley Gulp 10" eel, great combination. The reel has a bit of weight over some other reels but feels like its of better quality. I plan on purchasing another for my wife. On another note my brother in law purchased the Daiwa baitrunner which is also a nice reel but even he wishes he had spent the extra money for the shimano.

great for fresh and salt
I have used this reel for both freshwater bass fishing with shiners and canal fishing for snook and it has worked fantastic. Had several days this summer on the canals in southwest florida where we landed several snook in one day between 35 and 40 inches where the baitrunner 4000d handled them with no problem

durability has not been a problem in the slightest for me, i use this reel all the time offshore and has yet to show any wear on it.

I would use a 7 1/2' to 8' MH or H rod. I have the same reel and use a 8' ST. CROIX MH. Rod has the best of both worlds. good length and stiffness with out sacrificing action. I also have the versitilty to fish anywhere: surf, bridge, jeddy, or boat with out needing a shorter rod for a boat or a longer one for surf. The best advice I can give you tho is to go to your local bass pro and work with an associate to try the reel on multiple rods to find what best suits your likes and feels of a rod.
