Rod recomendations

So I went out yesterday off the back of 3mile reef yesterday and snapped one of my rods.

im looking for ideas to replace it. I'm thinking of a dawia. 

Will be used for live baiting and throwing lures paired to a okuma Salina 3 1000 with 80lb braid.

any other options I should look at would be great or if anyone has a dawia saltiga would be keen on hearing what you think of it. 

Cheers

 I have a saltiga s-extreme 80tn with a 14000 biomaster high speed that i use to throw stick baits for GTs

I quite like it, but feel like its a bit sketchy maxing out the drag so ive only got 60lb on the reel

Caught 25kg fish on it tho with no issues, and i really like the taper of the blank (fairly slow) , so its definitely a thumbs up from me for saltiga rods.. got a bottom bouncing one too which i love

If your not in a hurry the new range of Daiwa demond blood appear to be great value for money but the wilson venom range of rods are incredible nearly bullet proof and extreamly powerful blanks highly recomend them.

For the Wilson Venom gear, I use a couple of PE5-10 Deep Jig rods for bottom bashing.

 Thanks for the advice. I don't know much about the Wilson range so will have to look into them more!

Im not in a hurry to replace it. The boss lady is spending everything on the house and believes that no fisherman can use 8 rods at once.... she has much to learn.

 I have a Daiwa saltist hyper 64 CJ (PE2-4) which I"m happy with. Good for jigging, and I recently took it overseas, matched with catalina 4000H and caught some sailfish about 20-25kgs.

There is a demon blood version of it which is basically the same rod with a higher carbon content, so it's lighter can't remember if it has same guides or upgraded. slightly more expensive, but depending on budget I'd recommend these 2 rods.
