Default Swimbait Rod Sugestions!!!

Well i'm tired of using the 8 ft surf Rod on my big swimbaits. I just baught the reel. It is an Abu Garcia 7000. Here it is. It holds allot of line. I have caught some bass on these baits. Most of my collection of swimbaits are from 6 inches to 12 inches. I am mostly catching Blue Cat, Flat head & Stripes. I seam to do real well on the the Missouri River & below Truman dam. I need a rod that will throw up to a 8oz bait.http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st...kEnabled=false

Moose, I have an Okuma swimbait rod. I don't throw big heavy ones but Okuma makes a rod that will handle those heavy baits-I think. I've been pleased with it so far.

I went with a muskie rod from BPS. Nobody locally carried what i wanted. I did'nt want to buy sight unscene. This rod does have the counter balance. Which does offset the weight of the bait. Here it is http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st..._SearchResults
