I just bought a "Boss Hawg" rod and I love it [by Zebco].. although the reel it came with was too large for my hands.. so I switched it off with a small one I had o n my old rod..
The Boss Hawg: is 7'.. Med/Heavy.. and even though others state the same, this rod is stiffer so the tip doesn't bow- giving you more control when reeling in..
Also, the handle below/above the reel is twice as long giving better leverage and control when reeling in and resting..
It also has a small solid mounted metal loop.. to attach a security line to..
Which all together, makes it alot easier for a handicap person fishing from a wheel chair due to the lower height, and better leverage..
Was approx $30 for the rod/reel combo
