Have Diawa 27WC's with 7' Diawa Wilderness M's pulled out with Offshore's and tattles. I actually want to pick up a set of Diawa 17WC's and something other than the Wilderness rods this next year - I like the size, don't like the action. Put 30/10 Fireline on them to double duty with big fish and then stack two colors on the 27's.
Trolled a bit with the Cabelas Whuppin stick (their version of the Ugly) and liked it over the stiff Wilderness rods. Haven't found a 7' version of the EC Starfires yet either, those would be nice also.
