I'm looking to get a few set ups for drum. I'm not loaded and don't want to spend a ton of money but any way. I was looking at the Shimano bait runner or the Penn livelinner. Is it worth the few extra bucks for shimano? Also what size would you guys recommend ? I was thinking the 4500 shimano. Have any of you guys tried the cabelas Slat Striker rods? I was lookig at the spinning rod cssbc-703 or the 705. They are rated for 1 to 4oz or 1 to 6oz both are 7'-0". Each set up would be around $170.00 bucks. The saltstriker rods are on sale right now from 89 down to 59. Any help would be great.
