i have a 9'6" gator blank rod with all wire guides.

make sure it has some backbone and not a very flimsy tip.

but anything in the 7' - 10' range with a good backbone is pretty much all you need.

some guys swear by the rods they use, but walmart brands do the job just as well.

Where are you from? You might be able to find a rod where you're at now and support a local tackle shop. Otherwise, there are plenty of options once you get down here. Also, are you looking for a one or two piece rod? If you are traveling in a car and need it to break down, Billfisher makes some reasonably priced surf rods that have good actions and will match up well with a 750. (I think the series is K-Armor)

Give us a little more info on what your requirements are, and there will be plenty of advice. If you just need a rod to use for the week, I bet you could even borrow one.

i was gonna say the same thing about borrowing one and forgot about it. if you have a buddy down here ask him/her. if not i have a few rods you can borrow if you want to, unless your looking to buy.
