I have two new Diawa Emblem Pro 5500 surf reels with two spools each. Plan on using them for distance casting on the OBX with surf rods from Sea Striker. I also want to use them on my boat with the second spool and slightly heavier line for live bait. I am seeking suggestions on a quality 7' rods for these reels. You know the kind that does not cost more than $75 each. For the price is there anything that beats a $60 ugly stick? I want something decent.
