Default Rod opinions

Just got a nice reel as a gift for taking guys fishing. An Avet HX 5/2.

Any opinions on a nice rod to match with this reel? I'd like to use it as a stronger bottom rig.......

Thanks

I have been going towards jigging rods for all types of fishing. I like the light weight and you have the extra strenght when needed.

Default I like the Trevala rods...

But I was wondering what people thought of the Terez rods. They're proud of them, but from what I can gather, they've designed them because of the popularity of the smaller, light rods.

I toyed with the idea of getting a star paraflex for my new saltiga 40 but decided on the trevala with 10% off from outcast. The terez is not specifically designed as a jigging rod. Personally I think the jigging rods are more versatile, but then maybe I'm missing something.

I think that maybe this first batch of Terez rods have a production problem. A fair amount of breakage so far. The Trevela rod is an awesome jigging stick and makes a pretty good bottom rod.

I've got 2 JX 6 Avets, one on a trevela and one on a key Largo jigging rod. Both are awsome for jigging or bottom fishing
