Help Selecting Mojo Bass Crankbait Rod Or ?? And Topwater Rod

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a Lews Tournament SS MG 5:1:1 and I am looking to pair it with a crankbait Specific rod. I have allot of crankbaits, Arashis, Strike Kings, River2Sea, Reaction Strike, that vary from 1/4oz to 1 1/4oz. I admit I am not the best when it comes to tossing lighter than 3/8oz lures with a asting reel, so I usually go with a spinning rod. I mostly fish from a dock or bank, but have some access to a boat. I am also limited on space the longest 1 piece rod I can fit im my vehicle is 7'. I have been looking at the Mojo Bass Glass Target Crankster for a bit, I like that it is glass, and the range of lures it will handle is decent. I have also been looking at the original Mojo Bass Crankbait rod which is graphite, but it is a little longer, and handles lures up to 1oz. I fish at a local lake almost exclusively, it is a smaller lake, with a muddy bottom, and lots of milfoil. Because of this I use a good amount of squarebills, and shallow crankbaits, but I do fish other lakes that I are deep and rocky. I have also been looking at the Pinnacle Perfecta DCHC 5 7' MH Moderate model dch5-701CAMHCB.

What are the advantages of glass or graphite in weeds? Is there another rod I should be looking at? Also I am looking for a decent (preferably under $100) Topwater rod, in the 3/8-1oz MH rating, I have looked at the Vendetta 6'6" MH XF also I found a Veritas 6'9" MH XF for $70 at a local shop, I am on the short side but I can use a 6'6" rod to walk the dog without issue, I am using a Revo SX 6:3:1 for my topwater reel.

I really love my mojo glass rod for crankbaits.  I prefer glass over graphite for cranking because I lost more fish with graphite rods and the treble hooks.  Glass keeps them pinned.

 

That veritas should work great for topwater.

 

I'm sure others will chime in with their opinions.

Thanks, I am leaning towards the Mojo Glass Target, and the Veritas. I like that the Mojo Glass Target is 6'10" I have shoulder issues, and long rods (especially over 7') wear me out. I wish it was rated for 1/4-1oz, but in all honesty I rarley toss anything over 3/4, and I have a Cabelas XML H F thats good from 3/8-2oz I use for jigs, and it handles the heavy lures fine, just need to reel slower since I have a Lews BB1 7:1:1 on it

I have the 6'10 rod.  It was introduced last year to compliment the 7'4" and the 7"8" rods.  I have those also.  The 6'10, I use for smaller crankbaits like square bills and shallow divers.  Based on what you stated, I think you'll love the rod.

Thanks gripnrip, I will be picking up the Mojo Bass Glass Target, the price is right, for how far I can cast and my height, I really dont need much longer if a rod. Gonna take a ride and see if I cant find one local, if not TW, BPS, and even Dicks has them.

You'd be crazy not to get a Powell diesel. Love love love mine especially since tackle warehouse had them for 54.88.

I'm a die hard crankbait bait fisherman especially square bills and the diesel rod is hard to beat. After I got this one I ended up ordering 6 more powell rods!!!!!

MBC70MHM graphite, it'll handle the ratings on the rod and a little bit more. I still use 2 of these and won't let them go.
