I will make it a third on the trevela. I love mine. After bottom fishing with 6/0s on slammer and tuna stick rods, there is no comparison. Especially fishing in deep water. It is a lightweight and well balanced combo that can handle even the bigger AJs and grouper.

I concur with all, I have a 2 Trevala's, one a 5'8" and the other a 6'6" and they both kick butt.

I just bought the 30 yesterday as well. How would that setup work for traditional bottom fishing with live bait instead of jigs?

Personally I can't stand the trevalas but thats just me. Maybe they are good for jigging but i don't jig hardly at all and for regular bottom fishing I don't like them.
