I went yesterday also. Took the wife and thought I would regret it but she talked me into buying a new rod for a reel I already had. I got a Penn Jigging rod in 30 to 80# and 2 to 5 oz. jig, now I can't wait to try it out. I put a Penn 525mag on it with 30# sufix braid. It's sweet, real light. Glad I brought her now I would't have got it if she wasn't there.
