    Looking for new Bottom Rod - 28 May, 2020

    It's finally about time to change out my bottom spin setup. My heavier grouper/snapper rod is currently a star rod 7' aerial heavy action. I have it rigged with a bg6500. Love the reel. Rod is way too soft, no backbone. I'm looking at the penn carnage boat rod 7' -- but don't want to pay 200$. Any suggestions? Thinking maybe the heavy action 8' teramar? Not looking for any crazy 5'8" meat sticks. Something at least 6'6".

    Tight Lines,
