Default What Rod for talica 16ii?

I just picked up a talica 16ii, I currently using gloomis pelagic 6’6’’ 25-40lb, fast, on similar size reels and I’m happy with them. I’m looking for a all around rod for trolling plugs, bottom fishing for grouper, and ARS. Anyone have a good recommendation? Friend mentioned calstar rods. Thanks.

I got a Shimano Terez (black 8ft) and Shimano West coast Termar for my Talicas for bottom fishing.

With that nice of a reel you should go custom.

Calstar 700H (30-80) 7' 40lb line test being the sweet spot for me but plenty of folks like to fish 50 on them. Back your reel with 65 lb braid and put a mono top shot on it. You would only have to change the mono yearly or earlier if damaged. Short enough to fish on CCs and long enough you can use it on a head boat in a pinch. There are a bunch of newer lighter rods out such as United Composites and Phenix to name a couple but you can't go wrong with a Calstar.

I had one on a Trevala XXH and that was a pretty sweet combo, super light & very powerful.
