Looking at these two for my new lipless crankbait rod. Been using graphite, want to try the glass.

Obviously the spook/trap rod was made for this technique, but I like the length of the 753.
Also it says "big traps" for the spook/trap, I throw 1/2 ounce more than anything, but 3/4 a decent amount.

Usually fishing hydrilla or eel grass. Do I need the heavy of the spook'trap rod or is the medium heavy likely to suffice for ripping baits through the grass?

Any thoughts?

I have the Powell 703CB Glass rod and it handles traps up to 1/2 oz just fine rippin em out of hydrilla. It does get overpowered by 3/4 oz traps though. I would think the 753 would be similiar.
PB: 10lbs 4oz

706cb is my favorite trap rod also a great rod for throwing squarebills around cover. I tried using my 753 for traps and did not like it around grass. But the 753 is by far my favorite deep crank rod

I have the Powell Trap/Spook rod and love it! I throw mainly 1/2 oz lipless baits, but it handles 3/4oz baits really well too. I actually bought this rod for a trip down to Clear Lake in Cali to throw big spooks with. It performed awesome at that too. I handled several 5-7lb. bass on that trip with no difficulty. Trap fishing is one of my go to techniques, so I have really given this rod a work over and it rocks!
