What to use my freebie/broken rod for?

Recommended Posts

I work for a junk removal company, and we hauled away a fishing rod that I was told I could keep. It is a bps micro lite spinning rod. UL 7'9" (was originally 8'6" might shorten to next eye at 7'4"). 9" busted off the tip, so I would need to tie on a tippy top, but it seems like it might do me some good. With blank being shorter it feels way more like a ML than an UL rod, and the action is very moderate. So I guess Im wondering what technique(s) might a 7'4" ish ML moderate action rod be good for? I have no issue using it for a technique it isnt totally suitable for, but I am curious.

Why don't you try it out with some different lures and see what YOU like it for.

I actually like the BPS Micro Lite rods. I've got 3 of them,

2 ML and one travel rod in L, but it's almost stiffer than

the ML.

 

The ML is good for Ned rigs, drop shotting, smaller wacky

rigs, and so forth.

 

Is your rod the model with the gold threaded reel seat, or

the newer, graphite reel seat?

I think it is the old one. It had a $40 price tag on it, and I believe the newer ones go for 50.

Either way, decent rods for the money!

As a last resort, if it doesn't work out, keep it for parts and possible sleeves for repair of other rods.
