I think I have finally come to a choice with the Penn Battle II 5000 series reel for a new surf fishing setup. I am looking for info on what a good rod choice would be for this reel. I will be surf fishing mainly on Hatteras for the bigger fish. Thanks in advance for the info.

budget? I haven't tried one but I keep seeing Tsunami Airwave rods mentioned by a lot of surf fishermen as a good budget rod around $100.

I just bought a Tsunami Airwave for my wife. She's really pleased with it. Good sensitivity, lightweight, and really nice grips. Only took it out last weekend, but caught small sharks and a handful of pompano.

I have a Penn Battle 5000 set up with a Star Stella Surf Rod and they pair really well. I've had the rod since Spring and love it. Casts a mile and the quality seems like it'll last a long time. It's a 9 ft, but I'd imagine you'd want something longer for where you're going.

I picked up a new Penn Fierce FRC7000 10' combo from Sports Authority earlier this year. The rod might be standard but the reel alone is $70-90 and I scored the pair with a coupon for like $86 so I'm pleased. Not sure what type of line to put on it but she'll be tested next week!
