I have an 8' ugly stick heavy action casting rod that needs a tip replacement. I'm in Cincinnati and am looking for a place to repair it for me. Also I'm looking to put a good baitcast reels with a clicker on it. The rod handles 40 to 80lb test. I'd like something that can throw a gigantic bait with a big weight. I'm thinking about using a braided line too. I have never used braid so any advice will help. Any suggestions?
