If you can supply some more information on what you want to target then the guy's would be able to give you a much better idea what to look at.

What you wanna fish for and what your budget is will be the most deciding factor.

Good to have a couple of spinning set-ups on the boat as well.

Rods-Purglas, Poseidon offshore series, Elbe solid fibreglass, Kingfisher solid Fibreglass.

Reels-Shimano and Penn Lever drags rule the roost. Okuma also have excellent lever drag reels.

Spinning-Shimano, Penn, Okuma

Have to agree with IWyk. Main question is where, what, how and budget. I love the combo of a shimano beastmaster and TLD 20 or 25 spooled with 30lb line and you are good to go with most gamefish.
