Default Getting A New Medium Rod/Reel, Need Input...

Hey everyone,

I need a new medium rod/reel because my old cheap one is pretty much done. I want to spend some more money on this one so it will last. I've been kinda putting money aside just for this purpose and now I think I'm ready to get my new rod/reel.

Here are the reels I'm looking at:

Shimano Saros F- I've always like Shimanos and I thought this one would be a nice one.
https://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/s...cmCat=WISHLIST

Pfluger Supreme- Looks like a great reel and I'm sure it is. Pfluger makes good stuff.
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st...001000_100-1-2

Team Daiwa TD-Pro- I've always liked Daiwa reels as well.
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st...T&cmid=PP_P2_2

I think right now the one I'll probably get is the Saros.

As for Rods, here are those:

St. Croix Premier- I have the ice fish Premier series and I love it. I know St. Croix makes great rods. I'd go for the 7' Med. 2 piece rod (PS70MF2)
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st...2#BVQAWidgetID

Bass Pro Shops Extreme XPS- I have a BPS Bionic Blade which is a great rod. This is similar. I'd go with the 7' Med. 2 piece here as well. (XTR70MS-2 2-PIECE). BPS has a combo for cheaper that has the Saros and this rod but I don't know if they have the 7' M 2 Piece in that combo.
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st...T&cmid=PP_P0_2

St. Croix Triumph 4 Piece- I'm think I want a 7' rod but if I went 6'6" this would be a cool rod. Again I go with the medium.
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st...002000_100-2-2

St. Croix Avid- If I wanted to drop the extra $80.00 I'd go with this rod. I know these are awesome rods. I'd go with the 7' Med. 2 Piece. (AVS70MF2 2-PIECE)
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st...002000_100-2-2

There are also two All Star Rods that I was looking at but they only come in 1 piece. I might like an All Star rod but I think I'd rather have a 2+ piece rod. Here are those rods.

All Star GT40X- Looks like a good rod. Again about the 1 piece though. Also this one's only 6'6"
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st...002000_100-2-2

All Star Team All Star- Looks good, 1 piece. I'd go with the 7' Med.
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/st...002000_100-2-2

This last thing I'm wondering about is, if I go with the Saros, what would be the best model to get? I'm thinking either the 3000 or the 2500 would work best with a 7' Medium rod. What do you think? And which of those should I get? The 3000 or the 2500?

Thanks,
Orion

Do you need to have a 2 piece rod? If not another option to look at would be the Shimano Crucial, They are a great rod also but only come in one piece models.

I think I would rather have a 2 piece. Plus you guys say go with the avid, so I think I will. I'll probably go down to Denver and get one at the BPS sometime in Oct. So I'll get the Avid 7' Med with the 2500 Saros. Cool. Thanks.

Take I-70 east to I-225....take I-225 south to Illiff Ave...take that east to Abilene. Take Abilene north just past the stoplight...were on the right side. (With all the trailers)
