Getting a new 12 foot Tica Dolphin Spinning rod that is rated to throw up to 12oz.

Any suggestions on a nice reel to match to this rod. looking to spend anywhere from $50 to $150 on the reel.

Thanks

Jim

does the length of the rod matter when choosing a reel, if so please give recommendations on an 11ft rod

I have Penn 850's on mine.

If you prefer conventional, then someone else will chime in....

They'll work well on 10 & 11' also.

Used & ebay $70+, new $130 at BPS.

I have a Stradic 8000 by Shimano on my 11' Tica and it has been a very good setup. I have thrown up to 10oz with a shock leader with no problem. I also added a bionic finger by Breakaway to gain casting distance. Cost is $150 new.

Daiwa Emblem, Daiwa Emcast and the Tica Dolphin Spinning reel are all nice

I'm real happy with my Shimano Baitrunners. I have 4500s on my 9' & 10' and a 6500 on my 12'.
