I just bought an american tackle Sw1089. A 706 might be a bit to heavy for that blank but it's badass. It's got tons of backbone if the cobe decideds to shoot under the pier but the tip is just right (for me anyways) that I can still whipcast and flig a 2oz jig a mile but not the the point that it's to soft and I'm not gonna get the hook in a fish. I'm putting a cabo 70 a friend gave me on mine until a I can get a VS 250. Which are both pretty heavy reels.
