Jesse-

If you go to the Mille Lacs forum, and then look at the "for sale" subject, you will see a nice G Loomis combo there. Sounds like a solid combo to me for $160

shimano citca/ any decent rod- on got a citca on a berkley lightnigrod 7' mh 10-25 and ive caught muskies, with no problems. I spooled it with 20 lb pp, and its been solid. 150-160

no loomis/croix but works for me- I use it for bass/ catfish, mostly a live bait rod(large shinners-small suckers)

Hey I happen to have a rod and reel I can sell you. The reel is a New Shimano Curado 200 DSHV and it has a New Shimano 6'6" MH Convergence casting rod. This came as a combo. I bought several for a work outing and had one remaining. I was going to keep it but I have more than enough rods and reels.

The rod still has tags on it. I spooled the reel with 12 lb Maxima Ultra Green line last Saturday night with hopes to use it on one of my exisitng rods but never did.

The rod retails for $50 and the reel for $229.

Here is a review of the reel, http://www.tackletour.com/reviewshimanocurado200dhsv.html

The rod got a 4.6 out of 5 stars on Cabelas.

I am willing to sell it to you for $189.

I am in the Minneapolis St Paul metro area.

Let me know I am itching to use it and need a reason not to.

Another vote for the shimano citica. As for rods, the shimano compre series and cabelas tourney trail rods are great and very reasonably priced.

I got a Citica for my first baitcaster and I'm nothing but happy with it.
