It's the rod that got you the 120 yards not the reel! Tony
The rod that I had was about 10'6'' long, with the striper guide about 5' in front of the reel. The reel I had held about 500 yds. of 12 lbs. of mono and had a spool face dia. of about 6". I believe that both the rod & reel were equally important. It's the most awkward casting rig in the world. The line would become so twisted that it had to be replaced after every day of fishing, and I used a kneel weight with a ball chain on each end of the weight...
