rod/reel flathead

What length rod and size reel do you think is good for flatty beach fishing
Not really wanting to buy the best and not wanting cheap stuff
Any suggestions would be great,new at flathead fishing getting ready for this summer season

if you intend to cast plastics a 7 foot 2-4kg spin rod, 2500 size reel with 6-10lb braid will suffice
