In my trunk I have a 7' St. Croix mlxf two pice Avid X and a Fenwick River Runner 6'9" light-fast, the latter for creek Smallmouth. But  I'm sure there are hundreds of rods that will work.

Most any med. light/med rod will work. Ned fishing is not a feeling game so the rod don't have to be that sensitive. The St. Croix mention above will be as good as any.

As others have said, most any "close enough" rod will do for the ned.  I would go out and get your hands on as many as you can and pick one based on comfort/ergonomics.

Thanks for the replies ... Based on what was shared , TW has a few that would fit the bill and Cabela's has a St. Croix Triumph series that would work .

I'm from the ATL area myself now, moved here about a year and a half ago. For travel rods in this area I actually sold the rod I had previously and got a Triumph. Mainly because my old right was a bit less of a back bone, and theres plenty of situations around here where you can end up throwing into some slop without realizing it from the bank. I think the Triumph will be your best bet.

Cabelas has the Tourney Trail/Pflueger President combo on sale for $49.88....    However, the 2 7 footers they have are either 2 piece Medium or 1 piece Medium Light.  The latter would be nice to throw in the trunk if it weren’t for it being 1 piece.

So far , the best 2 piece , ML , Fast spinning rods I could find are a TW (banned) 6'10 ML , Fast , Fenwick HMG series 7' ML  , Fast and the above mentioned St. Croix Triumph 2 piece ... In 1 piece ned rig spinning rods there are more options - I like the Lew's 6'7" ML spinning rod specific for a Ned Rig but as previous posters stated , just about any 6'6" to 7'6" ML / M , Fast / Extra Fast spinning rod would work ... Looks like I'll be heading to the local Cabela's to check out the two piece St. Croix Triumph spinning rod !
