I have an Omen and love that thing to death. I have it paired up with a Shimano Saros. Got the rod from Gander with an online couple for 90$ shipped plus a $20 gift card that came a few weeks later in the mail. $70 for that rod is a steal. Amazon has the Saros for $120 or slip on a Stradic Fj for like $170...that'd be a $240 setup. Saves you almost $200.
