The 10' 1-4 is a very popular rod. Spinning outsells casting probably 60/40 but it really boils down to your preference AND what you will use the rod for. Most fishermen that throw metal go with the spinning. Bait fishermen are probably 50/50 spinning and casting.
Go with what you personally like.
Casting I would recommend an Akios 555 CTM (non levelwind) or CSM (levelwind). Spinning - any quality 4000 size spinner woill work. The Akios Targa 4000 is a great choice.
Timmy I see you sake a certain kind of mono on your site. I also see it's high via yellow, dies it come in clear or can I put a five ft clear leader on it as I am a believer in certain species being very line shy? Typically on this type set up I would use 14 -16 lb test also a believer in going as light as possible. Thank you in advance.
