I went up to cabelas two day and inside the bargain cave they had a 7ft. jarvis walker royale gold rod. Its 7ft and says it good for lures from 3/4 oz to 4oz. and 12 to 30 lb line. I wanted to start throwing plugs and was wondering if this is a good rod to do it with, and if so what kind of reel should I match it up with. They only wanted 25.00 for the rod so if its not any good for plugs ill use it for catfish. Also while i was there i sall those knew wave spinning reels, has anybody used them? I asked the guy working behind the counter about them and he said he hasnt had the chance to use one yet.
