Bought 4 rods, can only keep 2...

Recommended Posts

Hi members,

 

I really enjoyed shopping during blackfriday, ended up ordering 4 rods which are more than what I probably need as novice.. It also incurred wrath of my wife, so I will get to keep only 2 of them:( 

 

1. lews custom speedstick jerkbait 

6’7 medium/moderate fast, 8-14 lbs line, 1/4~3/4 oz lure

 

2. lews custom speedstick squarebill 

6’9 medium heavy/moderate fast, 10-17 lbs line, 1/4~3/4 oz lure

 

3. Fenwick HMG

6’6 medium/fast, 8-17 lbs line, 1/4~3/4 oz lure

 

4. Fenwick HMG 

6’6 medium heavy/fast, 10-20 lbs line, 3/8~1 oz lure

 

 

Which 2 rods would you keep? I am looking for rods that will serve multi-purpose and compliment each other, mostly bank fishing. I want to have total 3 rod set up, including my fenwick medium/fast spinning rods that does most of light duty..

 

Thanks for any opinion in advance!

I like 3 and 4 personally, but I'm a little biased towards Fenwick, as they're one of my preferred Rod brands.  Aside from brand preference, the only real comparative reason for me choosing the Fenwick's is I prefer a M/F or MH/F setup.  Again, just my personal preference.

My vote would be 4 and either 1 or 2.  Number 4 would be great for everything except some treble hooked stuff and that is where you would use 1 or 2.

My vote would be 4 for the multi purpose, and probably 2 for treble hook lures, although 1 would'nt be a bad choice either for treble hook lures.

2 and 4. that'd pretty much cover most of the situations and techniques.

Thanks for inputs! It looks like I should keep #4 for sure!

I think the decision is now between 1 and 2 personally and it really just depends on what you personally want. It is a Medium vs a Medium heavy so you just have to make the decision.  I don't think it will do you much good to have number 3 as well as number 4 though.  If it were me I would probably choose number 2 but I would have to feel them both side by side first...

Unless you do a lot of deep cranking I’d keep 3 and 4. Much more versatile.

#2,#4 for my vote. 

#2 would work on a large range of treble hook baits.

#4 would be a good all around rod for lots of single hook baits. 

Have stuff delivered to friends house or work to avoid wife confrontation in future 😂😁

I agree #2 and #4 are keepers, but it depends what you already own...

It really just depends on what you need get rid of the rods that your likely not going to need.
