Soft Plastics Rod

Recommended Posts

I am in the market for a new worm rod.This will be used mainly for texas rigging soft plastics, I was wondering if I should get the 7' medium or 7' medium heavy. I was thinking about getting the medium because I could use lighter weights if I wanted to, but then I wondered if it would have enough backbone to get a fish out of cover. Also do you think if need be I could put a 1/4oz weight on the medium heavy and it still fish ok? 

 (I'm open to any other rod suggestions but am on a budget and need to keep it around $90 or less)

Thanks!

I agree on the med. heavy. I use  6'6" Falcon Lowrider MH.

If you plan on fishing heavier cover than MH is the way to go. If you are fishing more open water I like using a M power for the extra sensitivity. Find a rod with fast action and you should be all set!

Go with MH, unless you primarily want to fish plastics weightless. Most plastic bodies you'd put on a texas rig, for instance, are around 1/4oz or more, so you're really talking about 1/2oz+.
