Do any of you sniffers use the Shimano Clarius rods?

I dont personally, but I hear they are good rods. I was thinking of getting one for striper trolling eventually.

Yep, Ive got 2 for steelys and salmon. Theyre great, good warranty on them if u ever break um. Ive got 8' 12-25 and a 8'6" 12-20 (I believe thats right). Both 2 piece. Ive had an 30 lb wild Idaho Steely on the lighter 1 and it was the most fun Ive ever had bringing in a fish. Theyre no G Loomis but well worth the money!

Shimano cardiff 300, abu c4 5600, good reels for the money, not to pricey. They will both take a decent amount of line from 20# on down to 12# so perfect for Stiper, Steelys, Salmon. i have those 2 and a more pricey abu 5600EXT.
