Should I get a okuma reflexion rod 7' MH/F for 60 on TW

Fenwick HMX rod 7' MH/ MF for 90 on TW

Any thoughts or preferences? Is MF to much bend for 1/2 oz jigs?

Contact type baits are where sensitive rods really shine, get which ever feels the most sensitive to you.       Jigs are typically fished on rods with a fast or xtra fast action.

I would look at the *** *** Black 7' 3" MH/F rod for jig fishing. Its a $100 at Tackle Warehouse and got a great review on Tackle Tour as well.

 

It also comes in a 7' 1" length as well.

Prefer fast or extra-fast tapers.

 

P.S. Teal is spot on with his recommendation.

PPowell Diesel Rod 49.00 7'MH on fish ranger

I might buy this rod after looking it over.. Is it sensitive enough? I plan on throwing 1/2oz jigs on it with a abu Garcia black max 2 reel paired on it..

What is your price range?

 

Hard to beat the *** series as far as value goes.

 

I'm using a Phenix recon 7'1 and its pretty great as well.  Not sure its worth 75 more than an *** though.

Young gun, if you can cough up another 50, fish ranger has the endurance for 109.00. I use the 714 and its awesome, slightly under powered, it says heavy powerand rod, but its more like a mag MH but i like that because i use braid and it compensates for the lack of stretch. Very sensitive rod also. I like the length too.

I also have a the Endurance 725, i use it for frogs and heavy topwaters, but it is also an excellent jig rod. That rod is a hoss, a very very strong rod.

I dont have any experience with the Diesels, just alot of good reviews.
