St. Croix Mojo Bass vs Bass X

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am looking for a good rod with good sensitivity and durability for a good price and I have came to the conclusion that I am either going to get the bass x or the mojo bass from st. Croix. I will be getting the 7’1” med heavy for jigs, t-rigs and frogs. Has anyone tried either of these rods? What’s your opinion on them? Thanks!!

I have the Mojo rod that you are talking about - its an amazing multi-purpose rod for the money. It's my texas rig and paddletail swimbait rod mostly, but I throw some 3/4-1oz topwater walking baits on it and it handles them just fine. I don't use it for frogging except for open water. I wouldn't recommend using it for pulling fish out of heavy slop but to each his own. The sensitivity is great for the money that you are paying for it. Never tried the BassX but I can for sure recommend you try the Mojo.

The Mojo will be more sensitive as it has a better blank.

I'm a big St. Croix fan and love their rods. And I could be wrong on this but I chose my last Mojo rod over the Bass X because the Bass X rod was less one guide than the same 6' 10" version of the Mojo. I have both generations of the Mojo's and like them both. The Bass X is a nice rod. I'm pretty anal and the guide issue was what kept me from buying it.

I own two mojos and one bass x.  I like both of them and would buy another of each.  Like LonnieP already mentioned, the mojo is probably a slightly better rod because it has a better blank.  I'm not sure what the warranty is on each one, but it may be different and that would be useful in making a decision if it was me.

I wouldn’t go bass x personally for sensitivity I like the mojos they are a good option. Powell just came out with their new endurance revamped you might wanna check them out same price range as the mojos.

 If you never had a mojo then it’s a must have very well built decent warranty.

I'm not that familiar with the Bass X rods, but I am a fan of the Mojo bass series of rods. Great rods for the price and they should be a little more sensitive than the Bass X, and generally speaking at that price point, the extra $30 can often be a noticeable upgrade (when it gets a little more than that, maybe not as much).

I have the 7’1” MH fast action bass x. At first I didn’t like how soft the tip was, but then I switched from monofilament to braid/fluorocarbon leader and I love how it performs. The hook sets on my Carolina rig are perfect. Sensitivity is good and I enjoy fishing with it. 

As far as the mojo bass goes, it will be a better rod than the bass x, but I wasn’t a big fan of the color. So the only reason I chose the bass x over the mojo bass was based on aesthetics. 

Good luck on your decision! Let us know how it goes

Ive owned a Mojo 7ft Medium Fast Spinning and a Premier 6'6 Medium Fast Spinning....never tried the Bass X line...but of the two I mentioned, I actually preferred the St Croix Premier. But you cant go wrong with the premier, bass x or the Mojo series. They are all quality

I was in a similar situation last year between the mojo bass and bass x, 6'8" m-xf. After playing with both in store I decided on the mojo. No regrets. Sensetive rod that has made me a fan of St Croix.

I tried a Mojo Bass rod based on the specs (the blank material) and was impressed with the performance.  I consider them an outstanding value.

 

Tight lines,

Bob
