Mojo,lami(arra,surf and jetty,super surf)rainshadow all in the 9'range.Is it bailless,it can take some time getting used to it but it will outlast any reel on the market.

St. Croix legend 8'-9' goes great with the 150 if you can afford it, the best reel for the best rod!

I got a VS150 with a bail cause I use it pretty much in the Fall through the Spring and it's easier to use with gloves on then bailess.... I have it on a Kevin Bogan custom 9' light Surf Rod and use it with 1/2-1oz bucktails and plugs up to 1 3/4 oz. A Great Combo!!! It's one of my favorite reels. I have a VS200 bailess when the fish start getting bigger. :)
