Default Boat Tackle G-Loomis?

I read over some of the threads and seems g-Loomis Pro-Blue series seems like a very good rod for striper fishing on a boat. I plan on fishing Potomac River and the Chesapeake.

I am thinking about Pro-Blue 7' 12-25 Fast. What conventional reel should I pair it with?

I have no experience with that G Loomis rods, but I'm sure any G Loomis rod put out today would be fine with braid. I know a few people who fish that Avet reel and speak fondly of it.

I have that rod also, yes its perfect for braided lines, I have it matched up with a Penn 975 star drag with 30 pound power pro.......The combo will handle moderate bass fishing from a boat with ease as long as you are not trolling. If you are into bigger lunker stripers I would switch to a heavier combo, especially from a boat. BTW-that combo is my all around, all time, go to outfit to date in my 35+ years of fishing.
