    Ok I just bought an Abu 7000C3 reel. I'm either going to get a catmaxx, ugly stick, or a berkley glow stick, to match it, haven't decided yet. probably most likely fishing for flats and channels the Ohio River up to 70 pounds at max. Probably targeting 15 pounders and up this year. Should i get a heavy or medium heavy rod. Also Do you think a 10 foot rod is to big for that abu?

    Hate to repeat the last two guys but I have to also say an Ugly Stick. If your going after the big fish i'd definately go for the safest bet and that is they heavy rod. They have good prices and a variety of sizes. Best of luck brotheR!

    My choice would be the 10' (maybe 9') Heavy action Ugly Stik. You might do with the Medium Heavy, but I would lean to the Heavy.

    The action depends on what you are tossing out. I personally like the Lamiglas Surf & Jetty XS10MS rod in two & one piece. It will toss out 1 to 4 oz. and a great rod.
