Rod Help

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get a new football jig rod  i have a skeet reese football jig rod it says it's rated up to an ounce for lures i mainly throw 1/2 ounce and 3/4 ounce i think you can cover most water with those two weights and that rod just didn't feel great to me for throwing them. Any help would be great.

Depends on what you want to spend. For around $150

you might find a gently used G. Loomis IMX MBR844C.

If you scroll down this forum you can find the classifieds where you can land some good deals on all type of equipment.  Also, ebay or the flea market.

For $250 you can get a new dobyns extreme 744c if you find it on sale. Hard to beat this rod for your applications.

Some options might be:

Powell Max Football Jig Rod 7'5" Mh

Phenix Bass Recon 2 Casting Rod 7'1" Heavy

Dobyns Champion Rod 7' H 704

Shimano Cumara Worm/Jig Rod 7'2" MH XF

 

There is also some Presidents' Day sales going on right now where I have seen up to 20% off everything.

x2. I would just add the Phenix M1 and Powell Endurance to the list. Really though, you cant go wrong with any of those choices and they are well within your budget.

If you are not in a hurry, GREAT deals pop up on our Flea Market often

For $250 you should be able to buy the GLX version of the MBR844C 

or maybe the BCR 854. These are two of my favorite rods for both jigs

and weighted soft plastics.

Buy from the Flea Market on this forum.  Lately I have purchased a couple items from ebay although I admit it isn't a favorite place for me to shop even though some very good deals can be had on occasion.  I just picked up a Quantum SuperLite 6'10" Heavy for $69 + $18 shipping.  Rod listed for $229 when in the Quantum lineup.

For used G. Loomis rods you can check out American legacy fishing's used rod section as well if you don't want to deal with auction sites or forum hopping

I think you will be pleased. I have the 683C matched to a vintage Chronarch Mg50.
