Does anyone have any experience with this rod? If so, how would it handle the baits listed below: 

I'm thinking of buying it to use for lipless cranks, small squarebills and maybe some smaller spinnerbaits. 

my resolution this year is to slim down my Arsenal and find rods that multitask. The taper and power seem like it might do well. 


Thanks in advance for any input

I own a few Powell rods and like them but mine are the older Max series. They make a nice rod in all their series.

My favorite rod by them is my Max 683CEF, the most versatile workhorse of a rod I own. 

Having said that for the baits you are talking about I have to recommend an Irod Genesis IRG 703CC Gabe's Rip Rap Special. I use that rod for all the baits you mentioned, it has a great feel and has landed numerous bass and stripers.

It is more expensive but well worth it. It runs around $150.  Just something to consider.

One last rod to confuse you ab it more is a Dobyns Fury 705CB. I have two friends fishing that rod with those same baits and they love it.

Still for me the nod goes to the Irod.
