Top 5 Must Have Casting Rods (Length , Power & Action) ?

Recommended Posts

What are your top 5 must  baitcasting rods in your boat (length & action) which you can't be without or you feel there is a huge void ?

 

*I'll start :

 

1) 7-foot, 6-inch H power  (extra-fast action)

Main purpose: Flipping, pitching, punching, frog rod and swimbaits
 

2) 6-foot, 9-inch M power  (extra-fast action)

Main purpose: topwaters and jerkbaits
 

3) 7-foot M power  (moderate action)
Main purpose: crankbaits

 

4) 7-foot MH power  (mod-fast to fast action)

Main purpose: texas-rigs and jigs
 

5) 7-foot MH power  (moderate action)

Main purpose: spinnerbaits, vibrating and swimming jigs

I could narrow it down to 3...

 

7ft mh/f (all heavier stuff)

7ft m/m (treble hooked baits)

6’9” m/xf (lighter stuff, lighter t-rigs, jerkbaits, etc)

Good replies - if you can do what you want with no voids with 3 ~ 4 rods  that's great - some people may even need a 6th rod !
