Light popper baitcast rod

Recommended Posts

So I think I have it narrowed down to a few choices but wanted a few opinions on the rods as I am unable to find them locally to actually handle them the rod will be  paired with a new tatula sv tws and used for poppers like splash it's, evergreen one bugs, popx, and pop rs so here is what I've narrowed it down to I'm just not sure if an ex fast fast or mod would be better.  Also if anyone has any insight to the tatula that goes up to one oz that would be great that's quite a gap and that rod should be able to be used for walking baits according to the lure rating 


One...3 fate black 6'7"med ex fast 1/4-5/8 oz rated $99


Majorcraft 6'10" med ex fast 3/16-1/2 oz $119


Daiwa tatula 6'9" med lt reg 1/4-5/8 oz 149


Daiwa tatula 6'10" med xf 3/32-1oz $149


Hammer 6'9" med mod 1/8-1/2 oz $164

  For my baitcast topwater treble lures rod I use a med/fast 6'10 St. Croix rage rod, and Lews Tournament Pro G reel.  Works really good! I would say a fast tip would be better for casting and loading up on a fish, as well as being able to pop or walk the bait. This rod also doubles as my jerkbaits setup, and I'm running 10lb mono line.  

  For really light lures I'll use a spinning setup, same length and power/action, except a little lighter line.

Been using the 7' spinning St. Croix Mojo M/F with Pflueger Patriarch (9530) for that purpose. 


I have the Baitcaster Mojo M/F for Jerkbait/Topwater but I just cant get the good action on it. I need more practice since I get tired after 10 mins of it.
