Best Rod Action And Power For Each Techniques??

Recommended Posts

So I'm buying a new baitcaster soon and I'm stuck on what Rod Action and power I should get.
I do allot of texas rig, carolina rig, weightless worm, swimbait, so basically allot of Soft Plastic/Finesse fishing.
So what would be the best Rod action and Power??

You can't go wrong with a fast M/H. Even a medium. I wouldn't use a medium power though if you are throwing some big swim baits. T-rig etc would do you just fine. I got a St.croix mojo bass and a *** black couple months back and love them. they will only run you around $100. Can't beat it.

I use a 7 foot medium fast or 7 foot medium heavy fast rod. The medium for my worms, and the medium heavy for an all around texas rigs.

Depends on the brand, in my opinion. Some may be better off with a medium, others a MH might be the ticket. Any ideas on a manufacturer?

Medium Heavy is what you want for fishing plastics. Medium heavy is pretty versatile all around, but I would say the lightest rod you think can handle it.

Mh/F

But that only goes so far, some rods run softer than others, if you are gonna get a duckett I'd bump it up to a heavy.

I'd say MH/F too, maybe a medium if you throw mostly lighter stuff.... For the stuff you listed though I would think a MH would be great.

As usual, it depends a lot on where and what you will be fishing, a MH fast could be considered the " all around ", true to a certain point, it could be an all around until you find yourself fishing heavy woody cover or tough emergent veggie cover like pads or tule, there a MH doesn't look like an "all around" as it used to look. Choose the power depending upon where and what you fish and not depending upon what we ( without absolutely no idea ) think it would be "best" for you.

Shimano, All Star Rods, Denali, St. Croix, Daiwa, Duckett, Okuma, Quantum.

For those techniques, I'd probably go with a MH/F.
