Seth Feider’s Favorite Multi-Purpose Casting Rod and Reel Combo

A quality casting rod and reel combo is the bread and butter for today’s bass angler. Seth Feider expands his favorite spinning setup with his ideal all-around casting combo for most presentations 3/4-ounce and less, from topwater to bottom-contact baits.


While it’s common for pros and enthusiasts to carry a dozen or more setups, you can get by with far fewer if you select the right multi-use combos. Feider discusses the attributes of rod action, gear ratio and a braided mainline that lets him fish 80% of presentations excluding light-line finesse techniques.
