BY SPECIES
Choosing the perfect rod and reel for a target species can be a daunting task. With the understanding that each species comes in variable sizes and different techniques are best served by different product attributes, we offer the following suggestions to help narrow your search.
Tarvos
Many in the recreational fishing community are not interested in chasing the latest cutting-edge advancements in fishing rod construction. These anglers simply want great performance from proven materials, and access to them at prices that represent an exceptional value for their dollar. If this is you, Tarvos are your rods, as perhaps the best fishing rods ever constructed for their price. 
Tarvos rods begin with durable medium/medium-fast graphite composite blanks that are exceptionally lightweight.  Stainless steel guide frames with titanium-oxide inserts add to the quality, and split grip EVA foam handles with a non-slip composite cork butt cap complete these beautiful rods.
Starting at $42.99
Komodo


The Komodo Dragon dominates every environment it enters and anglers will discover the same apex predator power from the Komodo low-profile baitcast reel. With high-speed retrieve models in both right- and left-hand retrieve as well as a powerful 5.4:1 crankin' model in right hand, the Komodo steps out with a full aluminum gearing system that's both incredibly strong and exceptionally light weight.  With AVEC-5 spool bearings as part of an 11-bearing system, the Komodo still weighs just 6.5-ounces overall. Regardless of your target species, Komodo will impress every day.

Helios

The longer and harder you fish the more you notice the nuances of weight and balance in your equipment. Packing the full power of an aluminum frame, handle side side plate, spool and gear system, the Helios defies gravity, weighing in at just 6.3 ounces, but delivering all the muscle. As the ultimate compliment to Helios rods, the combinations begin at less than 10-ounces total, offering a balanced system that can be fished comfortably, all day and every day.  Oversized EVA grips, carbon fiber handle and cast control accessed through the Spool Access Port complete this tournament-bred competitor with phenomenal ergonomics. 
Starting at $219.99
Krios
Constructed on a rigid aluminum frame and featuring dual cast control systems (an external magnetic and internal centrifugal) that anglers of all levels can fine tune to their precise needs, the Krios puts top-end features like high-speed 7.3:1 gearing in a powerful, easy-to-own package.  Available for both right and left-handed anglers, Krios 6 bearing system will out compete any reel in its class for casting distance, cranking power, and certainly for jaw-dropping good looks. Okuma's CRC or Corrosion Resistant Coating process protects Krios in all environments. 
Starting at $109.99
Safina Pro
Simplified with graphite frame and sideplates, the lightweight Safina Pro baitcast reel casts long and hits hard with 9-pounds of available drag pressure. Casting is controlled with an easy-to-use, externally adjustable magnetic cast control system.  A 6.2:1 gear ratio is highly versatile for working crankbaits, plastics, spinnerbaits and topwater presentations.
