    i was wanting some opinions on two different combos. the abu garcia seven and the one that zebco makes with a 808 on a med/heavy rod. on the zebco one, I am only courious about the rod, I have already trashed a 808 reel and didn't even catch a fish on it!

    I bought my girlfriend the 808 combo because she doesn't like spinning or baitcasting reel. I had a few problems with the original line, but after a line change, it works fine. Every now and then I'll take the 808 off of the rod and mount a saltwater Penn # 79 and use it as a baitcasting rod.
