    I haven't really decided on the rod yet. Probably go with an 8.5 footer, fast action heavy power. I've been considering a Tackle Industries but haven't made my mind up yet. I've got a couple large baitcasters but they are older round reels and their size doesn't bother me but they aren't nearly as comfortable as a low profile which is why I was looking into the Lexas. I heard that Okuma has a good musky reel too but I'm partial to the Diawas since they have always performed well for me.

    I've havent used Okuma before, but you should like the 400 size then. On the HD the power handle is standard, and i honestly like how it feels, I've never tried the wn. For muskie, i honestly like the Mojo Muskie. I have them in 8 foot. I know the St. Croix Triumph series rods are pretty good and cost less than moji's

    Caught my first Muskie with my Daiwa lexa's. Measured her at 33 inches. Caught her on a 8 inch Hellhound. Below the 81 bridge, left of the first island
