Mojo Vs Rage Vs Skeeter Rod?

Recommended Posts

I don't know anything about the skeeter rods but i do know about the rage and mojo.  I had mojo rods for a few seasons and when they had the special on buy 2 get one free for rage rods 2 years ago i picked up three.  I will say that the Rage rods are a big step up from the Mojo and unless you like the avid full guides and full handle i see no reason to go up to the avid as they both use the same blank.  Saves you a few bucks and gets the same performance.  I also have not seen any quality control issues in the three rods that i own.

The Skeete Reese rods are a bit of an eyesore. Also difficult to resell. I bought the fluke rod and the build quality was poor. Would not be something I would look at again. Sold the rod for $50 3 or 4 years ago.

The BPS carbonlite will be on sale during the classic. It was suggested that it may be 40% off. That would be a much better rod and value IMO

Could you please explain the full guides on avid, like what are they and what do they do different? Thanks

The rage series uses micro guides and the avid uses standard sized guides.  Some don't like the micro guides, I have not seen an difference in performance from my rods with standard sized guides.  I have not done a lot of research as to why the use of micro guides has been more prevalent lately other than the weight savings.

All three rods are good, the skeet reese rod is the lightest and best balanced, the rage is the most sensitive, and the mojo is the most durable rod. I like the skeet reese rods, but the rage and mojo lineups are good options as well. There really is no wrong answer to your question.

The skeet reese rods are on sale right now. You can buy them new for around 60 bucks.

I got a rage rod this spring and it just didn't live up to my expectations, just not the best bottom contact rod. I have a Skeet Reese Flippin rod I use for frogs, works well. 

 

So my best advice would look around for a good deal.

I've owned different variations of all 3. I'd go with the Rage if I had to pick one out of them. I had a 7' 1" MH/F that made a pretty good jig/Trig rod while I had it.

Are there any disadvantages to micro guides the rage has on them?

Some forms of knots cannot pass through them

I read one place memory lines like mono that have been on the reel a while can have issues.

Yes Sir, that is correct.. It's like that with any nylon, copoly blend, hybrid, flourocarbon, line I ever seen made, ever... And I would ask this, do you feel that memory on the line may be impeded upon passing thru micro guides?

That's what some are saying. The micros guides helps sensitivity but some lines have issues sliding through the guides. Braid not an issue.

It may create a bit of noise, but I use a 7'11" Rage with pacbay minima's, I use 15 to 25 pound line on it, flipping, smaller swimbaits, I have not had a single issue with the guides... I use Yozuri & Cxx lines, sometimes Trilene Big Game..
