Catanas are a good option for a rod, they are pretty forgiving and function well enough. I have a Catana with a Nexave reel. I'm not sure the Nexave is still available but that was a combo with a $200 price tag. I'd be seeing what they can offer as a combo. There are certainly 'nicer' sets around but value for money and durability they offer a good entry level option. It has been used for snapper jigs in 60m, softbaiting and straylining. It's had some pretty decent snapper on it too. Best to get your wife's opinion on it too, she may prefer an overhead set up.
