No need to post the same thing twice to different sections.
I trust you need to use this reel in the surf for casting or spinning is that correct. A way for you to get responses is to describe what you intend to catch and where. It is the quality of your questions that will get responses not quantity
I looked up the web they are matching this reel with a 12ft Penn Power Stick for surf casting, which would be a perfect match if that is what you intend to do. However I would go in for 10' rod with a shorter handle if I wanted to use if for spinning as well, having said that, there is no reason why you cannot spin with a 12’ Rod, there were times in the past when I used a 15ft surf rod to spin as well.
If you want to use the reel to troll, then you would need a shorter rod say 5 – 7 feet with some backbone.
Hope this helps.
