Shimano Baitrunner vs Okuma Baitrunner & Tica 12' Rod vs Okuma 12' Rod

I have been pricing both the Okuma 12' Solaris Rod and the Tica 12' rod. Okuma $70, Tica $109. The Shimano Baitrunner 6500B $119, Okuma New EB-80 $81. Does anyone have any insight on which of these would be the best combination. Money is not the issue I want quality. :confused: ;)

Big T,

I just purchased a 12' Tica(4-10oz) with a Shimano 6500B Baitrunner & a 10' Tica(3-8oz)with a Shimano 4500 Baitrunner. I haven't had a chance to try them yet, but am going to the Outer Banks for a week on the 14th. If you want to ask in a few weeks I'll be able to give you an honest opinion. They do seem to make a great combo.

I looked at the Okuma reels also, but decided to go with Shimano only because I've owned them in the past with no problems.
