    A reel is reel an will go on any rod really ;)

    You dont mention whether its for clean, mixed, heavy or cliff work ?

    The reels you have will suit mixed to heavy ground with 0.40 to 0.50mm mono

    The m4 evo is a nice steely, but light rod. It might struggle in the real heavy stuff but its a great allrounder :)

    Looks like she is getting the Abu then just got to learn her how to cast think its going to take a while I gave her a go with a fixed spool and that was bad enough she started fishing with me on the boats this year and can't get enough now she wants to fish the shore god help me

    used one for a year now.its handled al clean and mixed with a 525 or the rocks incuding arbroath area with a 535 or slosh 30.
    cant fault it even though cant use it to its full potential.

    Good rods them evo's m8,really suited to clean/mxd ground not & out & out rock rod tho,reel wise the 525 will be ideal for the clean/mixed ground @ range with .40mm mono,any ruff stuff with thicker mono's better suited to the slosh 30/saltist's or 535 size of reel,the 525's just don't hold enuff of the thicker mono.
    Hope this helps buddy ;)

    I have an M4 EVO and only use it for the ruff stuff. Its a real powerfull rod with a nice tip. No 2 zziplex's are ever the same and i've compared mine to 3 others and its been stiffer than all of them!
    I fished it along side a friends TTR and there wasnt a great deal of difference in action.
