Your Most Versatile Rod?

Recommended Posts

What's the most versatile rod you own? Mine is definitely the powell max 7 ft mh mod fast. It's labeled as a cranking rod, but I've thrown just about any lure 1/4-1 oz. Everything from 6xds to shad raps on 8 lb mono! I've even pitched 1/2 oz jigs and thrown frogs on 50 lb braid on this rod. It's a perfect hard and soft jerkbait rod as well. What's yours?

I'd say probably my 7'2" HXF *** Black. Really impressed with that rod for lots of big presentations. You can throw frogs, big wakebaits, jigs, deep cranks, chatterbaits... It's super light, has a ton of backbone and just enough tip softness to really bomb casts and allow action out of big vibration baits etc.

Blown away at what they offer- especially for the price!

Dobyns champion 734. Got two of them because those can cover about 75% of the things I would need to throw

I got a few custom built 7' MH/F St.Croix SCV rods that do everything I want to do with them with the exception of finesse stuff and heavy flipping.

6'6" Medium BPS Extreme.  It was my second Baitcast rod. I use it for Spinnerbaits now, but I use to thow Jigs, T-rig, squarebills, topwaters, and a frog a few times.  Its caught me a BUNCH of fish on a Bunch of different presentations, But now that I have a bunch of rods I love it with the spinnerbaits

Hopefully the rod I ordered on black Friday will be pretty versatile when it comes to lighter stuff... I ordered a ML/XF St. Croix Mojo spinning rod!

I have three that I feel are very versatile. All custom. One built on a Batson Rainshadow Rx8 popping blank, another on an Mhx high mod popping blank, and lastly one built on a Phenix Recon 683. As for production sticks go, pretty much all Kistler Klx and Alx Zolo b sticks have tapers and actions that make them quite universal.

I own rods of the same power and action in the Rage and LTB series from St. Croix, I love those rods for shakeyhead fishing.   Just a heads up, I have broken this rod in both of these series.  The rage was most definitely my fault, I stubbed the end of the rod against the side of my rod locker when putting the rod in the boat, the LTB, I can only believe was damaged between the factory and my purchase, not sure what the cause was.  Both rods broke about 6 or inches down from the tip. 

 

My replacement rods have been great, good choice.

Raul, I have that very rod. Just got it a few weeks ago. Really looking forward to using it next season.

My 50 + year old FIBRE GLASS fly rod.........It is that old.

Impossible to kill or toss off any type of bait due to the extreme full length bend when casting very hard. It bends evenly to the handle.

 

I use it as a spinning rod now for that reason. All new guides.

A MH / F is hard to beat for all around bass fishing, but of my own tackle I have a M / F spinning rod built on an MHX blank that I find myself grabbing for with little worry about what I'll be doing with it. It casts a wide range of common bait sizes, has a forgiving action and lots of power in the butt for a "Med" power. If I'm hiking and limited to one rod, this is invariably the one I reach for.
