I personally use the Avet LX Series exclusively when fishing sailfish tournaments in South Florida. 7 FT live bait rods are the perfect rods to combo with this reel. The G2 will fit in both plastic, and aluminum 22 and 24 mm diameter reel seats. I recommend my Sceptre 7 FT Sailfish Tournament Series Rods with E-glass blanks.
