Since you're float tubing, I would recommend something in the 6'-6" or 7'-0".

What line do you plan on putting on the reels and what do you plan to throw?

The Clarus is pretty inexpensive for what you get. I have 3 of them, spinning and casting, never had 1 fail yet, and if you do, it's an over the counter exchange, depending on where you bought it.. Wink BTW, these rods work Great in the bays.. Cool
