Going to buy my Chrissy pressent from my family and going for a new rod and reel I think for around $400 what do you recommend. . .

Things I'm looking
1 - light, both rod and reel
2 - ease & length of casting
3 - a bit of muscle to turn a cranky bream away from the racks
4 - prefer 1 piece ????
5 - thinking around a reel size of 1000?

Looking forward to your responses . . .

Cheers Scott

Hey Scott, there's a heap of good outfits you could put together for a round that money, as no doub tyou'll find out in this forum, everyone has their own take on things, so I'll throw one out there, for about $400 I'd probably look at a Shimano Stradic and maybe a berkley dropshot rod to run it on, which should get you to around $330 or so, leaving enough cash for some braid at the end of it.
Cheers

Thanks Joker,

I agree there are plenty of combos that could be made up thats why I'm asking for everyones advice so i can sit back and think, have had an offer from the BLF site of some new gear which includes a Stradic (which I have 3 of)so I guess I'm still thinking . . .

Cheers
