Cast rod advice

 Hey guys just got a quick question for those that like to throw lures. 

Heading upto the montes in just over a month on montebello Island Safari’s and have got almost all the rods for the different types of fishing I'm planning on doing but 1. I'm basically looking for a cheapish rod I can use for throwing 60g xrap divers/stickbaits etc at schools of mackerel and possibly smaller gts. I've had a look around and come up with a couple of potential rods but would like your opinions as I may be completely off. 

Abu Garcia veritas 7' 8-15kg lw: 18-85g

T curve revo offshore 10-15kg lw: 30-100g

Ive got a 8k biomaster laying around which will hopefully do the job, will this combo work? 

Also if anyone has a blue gomoku rod they may want to sell let me know, cheers :)

 pe 4 would be a better option for the monties casting smallish stickbait.  Especially on a 8k sized reel.  Plenty of big trout etc will smash a small sticky..  I use a pe4 grappler (think it's about 7'6) but anything with a softish tip and plenty of back bone will be good

 I've got a PE 3-5 daiwa saltist hyper, great all round rod for casting and even jigging. Would recommend if it's the type of rod your after. I've got an 8000 saragosa on mine.
