Powell Diesel Spinning Rod Experiences Wanted

Recommended Posts

Looking to add the shaky head and drop shot to my techniques this fishing season. Well not add but put to use a lot more then I do now. Don't want to spend a lot just in case I don't stick with it but still will have a good all around rod if that happens. 6'10 M/XF 6-12lb 3/16-1/2oz lures 10 guides total $70

Rod should work well with both applications. I use that same rod throwing senkos with a 1/16 or 1/8 oz tungsten bullet weight..... Works awesome!

yeah I called Powell to ask a few questions and ended up speaking with the owner Keith. Very nice guy and he made my decision easy. I put my order in a TW already

You will like the rod for shakey and wacky applications---I have 2 of them and love them for the mentioned applications--Great rod for the money

Awesome thanks for the good news. I ordered that one from TW yesterday and then found them for $20 cheaper elsewhere so I'll be getting a second. Plus I like things to match haha

It's nice any time you can call for simple questions and speak to the owner of the company. I bet that was informative! Good luck with your new rods. That's why I continue to move forward buying from small companies like Powell whenever I can.

Yeah he was very nice and answered all I wanted to know. Even explained some things I never even thought about. He thanked me multiple times for even considering buying a Powell. Overall a great experience. Yes I agree with the small company buying. I don't own a single shimano. There's enough fan boys for them out there.

I got the same one for christmas along with the 7'2 MH baitcaster and love both.  I got a president reel on the spinning one and it balances nice.  i got mine for wacky senkos as well.  Its definatly an extra fast rod.  Its very nice, top notch for the price.

I've been using the Powell Diesel spinning rod since mid summer 12 and really like it. I've been using it for drop shots, flick shake, and texas rigged plastics.
