If you are looking for more power for an LV the 705 may be the way to go but I have been VERY happy with the 704CB...

Re: How do you hold the rod on the retrieve?

Reaction baits, low, 6-9 o'clock. Jigs and plastics, high, 10-11 o'clock. Never work a bait over 11 o'clock, or you'll be setting the hook behind you. I think the reason why the responses were slow is because of the variables - but as Mitch pointed out typically you dont want to be out of hook set ...
