Just bought the Bushwacker XLNT 7ft 10 - 30g. I have tried my Daiwa Exceler plus reel (4000 size) and it feels far too heavy it weighs 405g. I have been looking at the Shimano Rareniums as they are highly recommended and was wondering what size would best suit this rod. I was looking at the 3000 and 4000 would like to have a spool filled with 8 or 10lb braid and one with 30lb for the rougher stuff if possible but not sure if the 3000 would handle this. Would be appreciated if anyone could shed some light. Also just wondering what sort of weight the Bushwacker XLNT 7ft 10 - 30g can take ie. when lifting a fish from the water as they seem very thin, Thanks.
