    Size Matters
    Hey Buddy, Send me a text or Call me, I have a New phone after I jumped in the water with mine and lost all contacts LOL...As for your question...Most Rod and Reels will state in fine writing the Lure and Line size Rating for that particular item. For example...You wouldn't want a Ambassadeur 5500/6000 on a Ultra-Light rod or 20lb test line on a Light Spinning Reel LOL...It's usually on the underside of a Rod close to handle and it varies on reels but it's usually on them somewhere...Good Luck...How's Reese Doing?

    Balance!
    Hey Chevy....long time no hear from. Balance is the key man. You should be able to put your index finger under the rod and just in front of the reel and the rod reel combo should balance on your finger. At least that's my set up!
