Get a light rod with soft tip to make it easier to detect the squid bite. Light gear, no heavy stuff.

I find that a light action rod with a soft tip helps to prevent dropping squid as the rod absorbs any movement of the squid preventing it from falling off as you are reeling in.

In spain the typical calamari we get here at most make it up to 1 kilo..
I was thinking about using a 2.80 very light rod with a C action (which meens the whole rod bends like a spaguetti)
and will be using it with a 1000 size reel....
I'm not sure if it will be the right choice...
I was thinking of this very parabolic action as a good absorver of the squid attempt of escape...
Would a Tip action be a better option-???
