With the Shimano® Stradic® FJ Spinning Reel, X-Ship makes the handle easier to turn under load so you can detect the lightest bites.

Saltwater approved and rated for use with mono, fluorocarbon, or braid.
A Bass Pro Shops® CarbonLite™ Spinning Rod is a thing of beauty, built on an ultra-rich carbon-fiber blank that compares favorably to 85 million modulus (IM9) graphite. Sleek, smooth carbon fiber transmits vibrations instantly and weighs much less than standard materials, yet has hookset power to spare. The guides are special: feather-light, stealth-black, Pacific Bay® DLC stainless steel frames with titanium-carbide inserts and a PVD (physical vapor deposition) coating to make them extra-slick and damage-resistant. Split handles with P-Tec poly-foam grips (and virtually no foregrip) keep weight low and blank contact high; our two-piece Soft Touch reel seat is light, comfortable, and bridgeless, exposing significantly more blank area to direct hand contact. All in all, you’ll love the feel and handling of this revolutionary rod, guaranteed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by persons Amazing
Ordered the stradic fj 3000 with the 7 ft 2 in medium carbonlite and it is an amazing combo. The rod is so light you can hardly feel it and its hard to beat this reel amazing power and versatility.

I think that is a reasonable choice if you are after bass, especially in heavy cover. If you are really going to be in the weeds, I would suggest heavier braid. Try fluorocarbon for your leaders. It has lower stretch and increased abrasion resistance. It is also less visible to the fish. A word of caution with braid: It's great stuff, but be careful not to get tangled in it. It can cut you in the wrong situation.
