    I only anymore(except fly fishing) use a medium or medium/light action 6' or 6-1/2' spinning rod/reel combo. Have 2 spools for each that I can quick change between 6lb or 12lb. Now I do have longer heavy action rods with 20lb for catfish and 5-1/2' to 6-1/2' ultralights with 4lb as well for crickets and trout powerbait but seldom pick them up anymore. I have Shimano, Lewis, Quantum, Garcia, and Pflueger reels. Like them all.
    I have heard of people have more than one reel set up, but never seen someone actually use it. Maybe I just fish lazily or something haha. My two "normal" rods are lined with 10 lb braid, and the Ugly Stik cat rod is lined with 20 or something similar. These two set ups seem to get the job done. But I know there are some fish who can be rather finiky about seeing the line, so I wanted a rod that allows for both lighter and heavier line depending on what I am doing.

      The British Monarchy isn't in any way an issue that interests me. I feel that the zillion dollars the Brits invest into their Royalty isn't an American...
