Hey Zac,
It all depends how much you want to spend.
if ya can try and get yer hands on the rod before buying, you want to make sure it has a fairly stiff butt section if you want something to increase casting distance, the best way to test this is to put the butt on the ground and hold the join in one hand, lean on it a bit and see how much it flexes too much flex means it wil not cast distance well.
