    Anybody used the Rhino RBCXL??? This caught my eye at K-Mart today. I would like to hear some reccomendations as to what rod and line go good with this reel. I was thinking of getting this reel with a 7 or 7.5' Ugly Stik.

    I looks like a good reel. I've been wondering about it too.

    I have one of the smaller bass style baitcasters , handled a 10lbs channel just fine . This reel is almost impossible to backlash , if the bigger models are as good as mine , they should be fine .

    I have the smallest model of baitcaster that they made...the RBC200 I believe. It is a piece of junk. I know people that have other ones that are nicer and have no problems with them. I got mine as a combo so I think it is extra cheap.

    Adam, I've got 3 of the RBCXL's, one on a Ugly Stick, one on a Big Game rod and one on a South Bend rod. The best rod for the least money is the Big Game. The best rod period is the Ugly Stick. I've got 80 lb Power Pro on one and 50 lb Gorilla Braid on the other two. Both lines cast well but the Power Pro is a little more abrasion resistant.
    If you get the reel, I think you'll be happy with it. I bought one, used it a while, then picked up the other two based on how I liked the first one.
