    As far as reels, I like the abu 6500c3. A bit pricey but worth every penny
    and If you decide you don't like fishing with a baitcaster they're easy to sell. How much you looking to spend?

    Tom - The amount of money your looking to spend is the determining factor in a casting combo. I personlly own several Abu Garcia 7000 ICS Prorocket Reels mounted on Catfish Safari Flathead Rods. Sweet combos but will set you back around $250 plus shipping.

    I personally would recommend a TWC rod with a 6xxx abu of some sort (well, maybe not the BCX). I just got two TWC rods for xmas and they are some baddd rods! They look great mounted with similar abus (one 6500TC "green cat and the other a 6600C3), powerhandles on both. These will be my new "go to" rods, backed by some whuppin sticks, ugly sticks, and glowsticks...

    If you dont want to spend that much for the combo, I would HIGHLY reccomend a Ming Yang CL60 mounted on a 8ft H whuppin stick. Great combo that you could pick up for around $75.

    I would like to see your fishing room, I think I would lose it with all those high end combos in there!

    mostly all abu's in the 6xxx series have clickers (there are a few exceptions). The ones mentioned here (C3, C4, TC) all in fact have clickers.
