I'm about toget a Daiwa Saltist Black reel for Christmas from my wife and am wondering what rod to pair it with. I will be using braid in the 80-100lb range and want a rod that won't have the eyes cut through by the braid. From everything I've read most rods are 7-8 ft long with medium action. What type eyes should I go with? Any brand name suggestions? All help is much appreciated!
