I took a long time to decide on a perfect jerkbait dedicated rod, and I got advice direct from the company - this was recommended as the ideal jerk bait rod. I only have a few trips with it but the action does seem ideal. Also double up with this rod on shallow cranks. I've been on a Dobyns kick lately so it's hard for me to suggest anything else, but I'm sure there are similar action rods out there.

I'm on the lookout for a better set up, but I haven't found one yet. I'd consider a bait caster for jerk baits except generally when the jerk bait bite is on it is windy, and I'm not real good at throwing jerk baits into the wind with a bait caster. So that is that

St. Croix Avid 6' 2" M/XF. I can really make my bait do whatever I need it to do with the extra fast tip.
I use the same rod.

Spinning gear: Dobyns 703sf (7' Medium/Fast) OR Abu G. Vendetta (6'6" M/F)
I like to use the vendetta for soft plastic jerks, lots of control with that rod. It's much stiffer however, than the 2 dobyns I have listed. The difference here is I can drive a 2/0 skip gap into the fishes mouth much better with the vendetta. The dobyns are softies. They're for use with treble hooks...keeps them buttoned right up.
