welcome to the forum, out of what you have suggested of the rods i would use the daiwa theory rod it is a 3k weave witch is a good weave, but a 1k weave is better, it just make the rod stronger and alittle bit more flexible, but 3k weave is still good,  and out of the reels you suggested i would go with the daiwa emblem pro, i have had a new daiwa reel, and i am not fond of them but i do like emblem pro.

The daiwa theory is the best rod out of what you have sugested, but if i were you i would consider takeing a look at the saxon rods. They have a 1k weave insted of the 3k weave and they are tanks!

Well first off...

How many rod/reel sets are you looking to get?

How much money are you willing to spend?

How far are you casting?

 

Personally, I can live with a cheap rod, but the reel has to be of quality.  For fishing tackle, you pretty much get what youre willing to pay.  There's a reason why some rods and reels are expensive.

I love My Daiwa Sealine Black Bri another alternative is UK version Linear this is my main reel I have three but I do have two of the sealines for Spodding and for Backups The Linear  comes with Two spools so if you purchase two reels one in 4500 and one 5000 You now have two 4500 reels and two 5000 the reels are same just different size spools. You have the Linear S solid reel but if you want to pay a few dollars more Step up to the Linear X a little smoother but the S is still a great reel that will last you if taken care of and I really do not feel a big difference between the S and the X   http://www.carpkit.c...r reels&x=0&y=0

 

The money You will spend on the Theory I would really consider going with Saxons or Gilbert Huxley heard lots of great stuff about Both but if I was going to make a choice I would go Saxon

 

Just my two cents

I wasn't planning to spend over $60 for a carp rod.

Im a tackle whore but we don't do much carp fishign in califonia.

It's not much of a sport fish over here.

I can use a salmon steal head rod and fish for carp but I want a long 12' rod for surf fishing as well.

I have an daiwa emblem pro for salt water plan to use it for double duty for carp.
Want to get the daiwa sealing bri bite n run as we..

Did know the wildcast z also has CRBB and 8 of them to be exact.

Can that reel be used in salt water?

We have several members in CA that would say Carp are a Huge Sport fish
