What rod for a 2015 Exist 2003H?

Post by hoohoorjoo » Fri Aug 30, 2019 2:34 pm

Like the title states. Looking for a light power and fast or mod-fast action. I'm open to lengths from 6-3 to 7 ft. I'd like something to kind of match it, since it's such a gorgeous reel. I'm not a huge fan of cork, but this one might look good with a cork knob and matching handle. I'd like to stay under $200. Thanks in advance!

Tim,

I had my 15' Exist 1025 on a C40 Elseil II but since I traded that rod for an NRX, my 1025 will go back on an Edge Black Widow DSR 7101-1. In the price range you're looking for, keep an eye out for a used Megabass XX Whipsnake if you like cork, or you can get a G2 Levante version at your pricepoint. I think the color scheme on the 15' Exist will match the G2 Levante HW nicely.

The Major Craft Speedstyle Spinning rods might be a good match. They are slightly above your price range but they do go on sale periodically. Could be worth checking out :D
