Hey guys I need yor input. Im looking for a rod to throw 5'' senkos and ikas. Dont really want a seven footer maybe something longer than 6'6" but shorter than 7. I have all crucial rods right now just looking for another option as far as lenth goes. I dont like how my 7' balances wiith my e7. I was using a 7 mh/fast for it. Buget $180 maybe a tad more.

St. Croix Avid AVS68MXF

I prefer spinning tackle for weightless soft plastics, but if you

are looking for a baitcaster, this is the comp: AVC68MXF

I have a Falcon Cara T7 Micro Guide Casting Rods 6'10" Med Hvy and it seems good to me. It's paired with a Curado 50E.

I too like the Falcon Caras, they have a weightless worm rod, I've fished senkos on my 6'10" finese jig Cara and it handles them nice.

It is longer than you want, but you could try the balance with your reel if there is a shop near you that still has one of the Cumara 7'2" MHF rods. This rod is listed as a Senko/Fat Ika rod. It does quite a few things well. Personally I don't notice a tip heaviness, but that could just be my lack of perception. My wife tells me I don't have any. :(

EDIT: Take a look at the Fenwick Elite Tech Smallmouth rods. They have a couple in the 6'9"/6'10" range that might fit the bill. I haven't thrown a Senko with my 6'10" MF (rated 1/8-3/8) yet, but have fished a fluke on it. They also sell a 6'9" MXF (rated 3/8-5/8) and 6'9" MHF (rated 3/8-1). I think the last rod would be the best choice in the series for what you want to do.

I use a 6'9" St.Croix Mojo Bass Dropshot rod. It has a nice X-fast tip and really sticks them. Also, for just under $100 it is a great deal.

6'8" Cumara MHXF. It's a sweet rod and can probably be found in your price range.

it's an awesome awesome rod especially in that price point. If you want longer length for those farther casts, get the 7'2" mhxf rod.
