Quantum Smoke rod 7', Medium power / Fast action, 1/4-3/4 lure rating 3.4oz

Shimano Core 50MG7 7:1 ratio 5.5oz

Power Pro Super8Slick 20#

 

The rod has a very wide range going below 1/4 quite well (1/8) and handling 3/4 rated lipless cranks that actually weigh a bit more.

The reel can also handle any lure in the rods range as well.

My specific rod/reel would be my x7 extreme mission paired up with steez 103hla w/sv 105spool and 7.1 gear upgrade.  It would handle my favorite techniques plus it's my most expensive combo, lol.

I have to agree with the above, a baitcasting setup with a 7' Medium-Heavy fast action with a 6.3-1  reel. Would make for a great combo as long as you know how to use it.

I'd get one of them 8' long spinning rods as big around as fence post, with a huge reel, spool it up with some rope, and use a bobber the size of a volley ball................that's what I see all the people who only have one rod using at the state park when I launch the boat, so it must be the answer to this age old problem that has cursed man since the dawn of time (circa 1976 in case your wondering) . BTW is it all right if I sit on a lawn mower while I use this single rod of wonderment ?

Funny story is that I was one of those guys, but I didn't have a 8' long spinning rod.  :eyebrows:

 

I was once like that not many years ago and thought you people with 20+ rods were crazy.  Fast forward about 6 years and I'm one of you crazy guys.  I use to be a saltwater fisherman and my rod I owned at the time was a rod not ideal for bass fishing.  I use to think freshwater fishermen were wimps and how hard could it be, a land locked body of water.  :laugh5:  Boy was I wrong!  I didn't realize how much bass fishing was a real sport with challenge and once I learned, I caught bass consistently.

 

I've been trying to get my brother in law into fishing, he likes it (he's one of these people)..but he gets discouraged when I catch fish left and right.  My goal in 2015 is to help him catch consistently.  I've set him up with a nice spinning combo (Airrus rod with a Shimano Symetre) after his setup blew up on him.
