Kistler Magnesium, iRod Genisis 2 is popular, Powell Inferno. There are many choices in this price point. A MH/F will probably do the trick unless you're using heavy wire hooks, then maybe get a heavy.

Just a question, have you used any of those rods? I don't think you should comment on them if you haven't used them before.

 

Pertaining to the OP, its really up to you. I vote my Powell Endurance.

See how this works is... You'll hear 100 different answers. Some people don't even own or have minimal use of what they recommend. Some people just repeat what they hear elsewhere. There is no real right answer to this question.

The Tatula is a nice $90 rod that's out right now. Pair it with a tatula reel for $95 and you have yourself a nice combo for $200.

What line do you intend to use? Braid & carbon lines can really help overcome a rods lack of feel..

I have a few rods in that price range... a St. Croix Premier and a couple of the Kistler Carbon Steel.  I didn't get to fish the Kistlers a whole lot as I got them near the end of the season, but I'd say the Carbon Steel are more sensitive than the Premier (and lighter).

 

Tight lines,

Bob

I have 30# power pro braid on my vengeance but thats going to become my spinnerbait/topwater rod and reel. The tatula and new rod will be my soft plastics/jig rig. I will string it eith fluoro. My question is this. If i go with a medium fast *** black. Will the lighter power sacrifice the sensitivity

Will going with a medium power sacrifice the sensitivity? Curious into the mechanics of rods.

I'd go with a Mh. M action rods are under powered for most jigs.

No matter if it's a medium or a medium heavy sensitivity isn't changed.

I use a heavy ***, and don't own the medium, however I don't see where that matters.. The *** has excellent feel with carbon, palms sweetly with a 50 size reel. Tatula is a bit bigger, I would wonder how the rod & reel together would palm? *** has a tiny grip...overall the *** has great feel though.

See I'm the exact opposite. I couldn't stand the *** and sold it. Basically what I was saying earlier OP. No real answer.

I love my *** Black. Its a darn good rod for $100-$120. 

As for M or MH, that is a tricky one. According to rod rating, it would look like the M would probably be better for 1/8 oz-3/8 oz but I am not sure how the backbone is of a Medium powered ***. I have a 7'3" MH and I feel like it would be really tough to cast an 1/8 oz jig or T-Rig on it.  Its a stiff rod.  Being so stiff, Im guessing a Medium would be your better guess. 

 

An interesting note...according to ***, the ML spinning rod is made for those weights...

I primarily fish soft plastics over jigs. Reason i asked is because of the weight rating on the *** mh

I'd handle an *** before I get one. Was planning on getting one till I held it. Handle is way too small for me and it felt cheap.

I use 3/8 jigs but use about 3/16 weight on my t rig mostly depending on the current
