I Have an Avet SX Raptor coming, and I am searching for the best rod to match. Looking for a good stand up casting rod in the 20-40lb range with Aftco or similar aluminum reel seat that will work. It will be used on 3 day trip's out of San Diego, as my light set up.

I'd recommend a Seeker Hercules SHS 70L rated 15-30 or even better the SHS 70M rated 30-60. We had a customer landing YFT up to a 100#s on the SX raptor and SHS 70M combo fishing 50 braid to a short 40# fluoro leader. Nice and light but deadly strong. It has a graphite reel seat and a aluminum gimbal with rubber butt cap over the gimbal. Most 15-40# rods are going to have a graphite reel seat too.

Hope the info helps,
B
