My birthday is coming up in about a month, and my girlfriend wants to get me a new rod. I currently have an ugly stik spinning combo and an abu 6000 on a berkley big game rod. The big game rod is just not doing it for me. I'm up for any suggestions on a rod that would be good for me. I catch mostly channels in the the 4 to 10lb range, but I've been targeting some flatheads lately. I want something that will be strong enough to muscle out the big ones, but have a senstive enough tip to go after the smaller ones that I catch. Any replies would be appreciated, and if a reason why you like the rod would be helpfull too. Thanks!
