These are the rods I would choose for each of these rigs or baits, they are all Duckett Micro Magic's. What do you guys think? Anything y'all would do different?


 


Baitcaster:


7' Power:Medium Action:Fast-Topwater, Smaller S-B, Jerkbaits (all even deep), Prop Baits, and Smaller Traps.


 


7' Power:Medium-Heavy Action:Fast-Larger S-B to medium divers, T-Rigs, Mojo-Rigs, Rage Rigs, Spinner Baits, Larger Traps, Drop Shots (Pitching them into cover), Small Swimbaits, Light Jigs, Buzzbaits.


 


7' Power:Heavy Action:Fast-Jigs (Pitching), Medium Swimbaits, Punching, Frogs.


 


7'6" Power:X-Heavy Action:Fast-Flipping, A-Rigs, Large Swimbaits.


 


7'6" Cranking Power:Medium-Heavy Action:Moderate-Semi-Deep to Deep Diving Crankbaits.


 


Spinning:


7' Power:Medium Action:Fast-Finnesse-Shaky Head, Drop shot, Senko, Wacky Rigs.

Good setups. Depending on the mess you plan to punch, might want to use the XH.

Thanks fellas. I was a little concerned about choosing a M power rod for smaller cranks cause my buddy told me he though I would lose fish because of it. I actually lost a decent fish the other day fishing a SB on that rod, but it could have been the color or size of bait I chose to use. Do y'all think that M rod will cause me to lose fish on those smaller treble hook baits?

I'd do away with the extra heavy and get another medium heavy but that's just me

I hope not.  A MF is what I have been using for treble hooks.  Wasn't until this year that I got a rod designed for crankbaits.  Don't use all 20lbs. of your reel's drag.  :teeth:

Using a medium power rod will not cause you to lose fish. It should have more than enough power to drive the hooks home.

Yeah one thing I have noticed though is that I am not able to feel the wobble in my baits very well with the M compared to a MH. I have mono on it right now could that be affecting the feel?
