I recently bought the G. Loomis E6X inshore 8’ mag-heavy. I have a stradic 8000 I thought I was going to use with it for Snook and tarpon fishing in south Florida in the inlets and from a boat. After receiving the rod I discovered it is unbalanced with the stradic 8000. I also have a Saragosa 6000 that fits the rod perfectly, however, when retrieving lures the Saragosa thumps the first guide causing an annoying feel when reeling. Although the stradic is larger it does not thump when retrieving. Does anyone have experience with this problem? Willing to purchase the right reel.
