Good All Purpose Medium/fast Action Rod For 150.00?

Recommended Posts

I guess the title says it all. I am looking for a general purpose medium rod. Light jigs, texas rigs, etc. Anyone have one to recommend?

All kistler rods are 25% off right now and a lot of people say $200 is to cheap for the klx, and the discount makes it $150 so do that lol.

St croix premier

a good choice but also look into a St. Croix Rage which is still in your price range but made of a lighter and more sensitive blank than the premier. I have a medium/fast casting model and it is a BEAST! Definitely look into it.

At $170 Aaron's Edge Mag Bass 7' or 7'3" medium Enigma rods should be on your list to evaluate. Aaron has has a great year to date with this new rod series and currently leading AOY standings.

Rage are prob still on sale on the st Croix site for $89. I have two. They're good rods. Avid/Avid X start at $200 and it's hard to find anyone who doesn't love them.

An old style used in really nice condition G-Loomis MBR782IMX on eBay for $150.00 or maybe a little more.

This is going to be a popularity contest so the rod you choose is going to look good to you with features you like. I won't add a rod to this because I think any rod at that price point is going to be decent and no matter what you choose you'll get a good rod.

Or wait for the new mojo to come out. Going to have the SCIII blank and will be considerably lighter than the old mojo, according to the lady I talked to at St Croix.

Do you know if this mojo is going to cost more because of the SCIII blank?

It'll likely replace the Rage series at the $150-$170 price point. As it is, St Croix already has 3-4 series built on the SCII blank at the $90-$120 price point.

that would surprise me since the current rods sell so well at the $100 price point which seems to be the sweet spot for a lot of bass rods.  If they don't use micro guides, they should be less than the $150 price point

Unlikely. They've already discontinued the Rage and have 3 other series at $90-$120. The new Mojo won't be $100 rods.

That makes sense. I love my rage and a mojo bass of that caliber would be sweet. The SCIII is a very sensitive rod blank.

I own St Croix Premier, Avid X, and LTB rods. Also Carbonlite, Loomis E6X, and Cabela's Tourney ZX. My advice: Buy two Cabela's Tourney ZX rods when they get marked down from $99 to $70 (or less) or save up and buy an Avid X.
