Q&A: Rod Recommendation with Stella 5000

Updated: Apr 19, 2020


"I’m looking for a rod to pair with a Stella 5000. I want something to throw topwater plugs soft plastics like gift protail and swim baits mostly. I would also use occasionally for jigging and live bait. Want it to be able to cast 3/4 to 3 oz. and mostly fish for striped bass Black Sea bass bluefish and albies. I’m looking at the challenger light 701 and med 731. Would these be my best be or should I go another direction?"


"Challenger Bank 701 L and 731 M are good rods for your application."
