Rods and Reels

I was writing an email to Captain Jimbo, and I thought this information may come in handy in the future as well, so I'm documenting it here. My current rod and reel situation:

Redbone 2-piece M/L with a Daiwa Capricorn 2500 and 10 lb. line
Redbone 1-piece M/L with a Shimano Stradic 4000 and 10 lb. line
Redbone 1-piece M/H with a Shimano Stradic 6000 and no line *

* still trying to decide whether to string this up with 15lb test or what. Both of the 10 lb. line above is bright bright green, which doesn't matter in saltwater much because you use a leader. It didn't seem to matter in freshwater the other day either, because I caught three fish.

I've also got two Mitchell fiberglass M/L rods and two Mitchell 300 reels (all four of which are about 20-30 years old). One of the rods needs some eyelet/tip work, and I forgot to take it when I went up to Sports World two days ago. Perhaps tomorrow I'll take it up before work.
