not sure which spinning rod to buy

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm looking to buy a new spinning rod and I'd like to get some advice from you all.

I am trying to decide between these 2:

http://www.tackledirect.com/daiwa-tds662mxs-team-daiwa-spinning-s-bass-rod.html (6.6' MXF 2 piece)

http://www.basspro.com/Bass-Pro-Shops-Johnny-Morris-CarbonLite-Series-Spinning-Rod/product/1406210641364/(7' MHF 2 piece)

I intend to use it to fish texas rig rigs rigged up with 10 inch worms, small jigs like the zero gravity jig, tubes, shaky heads and weightless plastics like senkos, etc... 

I will match it with my trusty shimano sienna 2500 and use #20 braided line.

Any thoughts?

Did you need the two piece rod?

I have  BPS carbonlite 6'9" MF with a Revo SX spinning setup that I use for flukes and lightweight top water. The rod is very lightweight and has good backbone. The only gripe I have with it, is that's it's noise with braid, even superslick. The MXF may be a little light for 10" Texas rigged worm but everything else should work fine.

Thanks for the inputs guys.

@Chrisran99, good to know, I was a little concerned about hook setting power with the MXF rod.

@fishnkamp. yes, I would prefer a two piece, it's easier to carry in the trunk of my car. I like to hit the ponds after work.
