Help Me Set Up My Rods

Recommended Posts

Ok so I'm new to fishing and the site. Started about a month ago with my buddy's stuff and was hooked. Have been going a little nuts lately lol and now I have 3 setups thanks to BPS and black Friday sale. I think these should do me for a while and was wondering what you guys thoughts are. I'm thinking:

Quantum Smoke spinner(5.4)/Smoke 6'6" medium-fast: my finesse soft plastic rig.

Quantum KVD PT baitcast (7.0)/ BPS Carbonlite 7' medium heavy fast: crank/spinner?

BPS Pro Qualifier combo (6.4)/ 6'6" medium heavy fast: jigs and ?

Personally, I'd use the 7.0/7'MH set up for jigs, t-rigs, etc and I'd use the 6'6 combo for spinners. I don't like a fast tip for cranks but you could get away with them if you use mono. I would throw cranks on the m/f set up since it won't have AS much of a backbone to rip the trebles away from fish. For cranks, honestly, I would get a different set up, eventually with a mod action. Just my 2 cents. Hopefully its helpful haha.

Yeah I'll eventually put the pro qualifier on another rod better suited. The 6'6" mh it came with is much stiffer than the 7' carbon light. But for $69 for the combo it was worth it for just the reel. I'll have to adjust setting the hook softer and to the side sweep in guessing.

In that case you'll be fine with your line up. Or switch the 7.0 and the 6.4 reels. Thats personal preference though. I never feel the need to fish a crank or spinner that fast.
