Which rod will work best paired with an Avet LX? Fishing strong braid from a pier ripping into some blacktips and the occasional offshore snapper and grouper days. Was also interested in butt length and length of rod you recommend from a pier?
The Shimano TLC70XHBBL Tallus Blue Water Conventional Rod would pair well with the Avet LX and the butt end is 12 3/4 inches long.

What rod/reel would you recommend for deep water "jumbo" sea bass fishing?
There are lots of options for that. If I was using Shimano only I would use a Trevala rod and a Torium or Talica reel.

would this rod be good for tog fishing in nj and if so what would be a good match up reel. and the reel has to come for left handed person
This rod would work fine for that kind of fishing. I would probably recommend one of the lighter models for that. As far as reels go, you could put a Penn Squall or Penn Fathom on there if you like star drags, or a Avet SX or MX if you like lever drags.

I am looking for a rod to match my tiagra 16. Used primarily for trolling in the Gulf of Mexico for kings and the occasional wahoo, mahi, etc. Also, this is my first Tiagra reel, does this particular reel match up well with this type of fishing?
Ed, that is an excellent reel for that type of fishing, I would recommend a Shimano Terez Slick Butt Stand-Up Ring Guide Rods. You want to go with a 5'9" rod if you are fishing on a boat with inboard motors, Or the 6'6" if your fishing on a boat with out board motors both in a Medium Heavy Action.

David

March 17, 2015
Would the 7ft medium be too much for fishing king mackeral on the FL Gulf Coast?
David, the 7ft medium Tallus would be the perfect rod for fishing Kings of the Florida Gulf coast. The line rating is right in the ball park of what pound test is perfect for that type of fishing.

Can I use the Daiwa Seagate Levelwind Reel with this rod?
Yes you can. The reel has plenty of line capacity, but may be lacking in the drag depending on your intended application.

I want to use it with a shimano TLD50IIA, what do you think? would work for swordfish and striper marlín?
Yes, that combo will work well for you. Go with the Heavy if you will be doing more Marlin fishing or Extra Heavy model if you'll be doing more Swordfishing.

from King of Prussia, PA asked:
May 15, 2014
What rod would you suggest to be matched with a Torium 16/20 for blues and stripers?
The 7' or 8' medium action rated 30-65# line would be your best bets. The TD code SHM-2441 is the 8', and SHM-2458 is the 7'.
