Jig/Worm Rod

Recommended Posts

I just recently broke my 7' med heavy O. M. E. N. for the second time and decided that I'm done with *** and their crappy quality. I'm now in search of a new rod for jigs and worms and am leaning towards a Loomis e6x 7'1" med heavy xf. Anyone know any better rods for a better price? I would be fishing it with 15-17 lb fluro.

Thanks,

Jack

You know Fenwick Aetos are 1/2 price right now on Fenwick website right? I just got two this week and they are very very nice. For $102.00 at my door with a lifetime warranty. These are awesome if they fish 1/4 of as good as they look. 

Tomorrow morning they will be tested heavily.

^^^yes, this!

Just got one of these too. any of the MH-F or MH-XF models should be great.

Another one worth looking at is the 6'9" MH-F elite tech smallmouth rod, which there are still a few left at FFO tackle:

I actually was wanting a worm rod too and ask Fenwick specifically about this.

I am looking for a rod to throw plastic worms for large mouth bass. So I was looking at the MODEL # A741MFC. Would you consider this to be a good rods for this? 

This is a direct quote from the email response.

The A741MFC is really technique specific for that exact application.

I may be different than most with the action on my worm rods. If I had two separate manufacturers MH rods I would like the one that had a more Medium feel to it all else being equal. So I am hoping this is the ticket. It is light weighing only 4.48 oz and looks incredible for the price I paid. Might be a option for you.

Lew's Custom Speed Stick, Soft Plastic Special! I bought one yesterday, and I love it! Feels great in hand, and handles many different baits, from unweighted worms, to chatters, and jigs. $119

Someone on here recently mentioned this to me in one of my other threads, so I'll pass on the good deal

Diawa Tatula for $109, I use the 7' 2" Heavy fast for jigs/worms and like it. Very light and sensitive.

I would check out the Fenwick Aetos also. Just ordered a 7'2" mh-xf for $100 delivered, will be using it as a jig and occasional worm rod.
