For those that just want to try out BFS on a budget, pair the above reel/spool with an Ugly Stik Elite UL rod:
I like fishing with the rod so much I'm stripping off the guides and replacing them with Fuji K Alconite mid-micros.
It is an even better match with the Tat CT Type-R if you want to splurge a bit
