Looking for a new spinning rod for around 100 bucks. The goals for the rod are to fish for walleyes in the spring using 1/8-3/8oz jig head with minnow dragging on the bottom. I'd also like to use it for bass fishing during the summer, which is the majority of my fishing. I'd like to use this rod to fish for bass which is where I do most of my fishing, I'm thinking of using it for senkos, drop shot, ned rig etc. So far i'm looking at the st. Croix bass-x and dobyns fury. What do you guys think regarding a rod for 100 bucks and what weight and action. 

 

Thanks.

I recently purchased a BPS Carbonlite 2.0 6'8" m-xf spinning rod rated for 1/8-1/2oz. It's pretty sensitive and not too fast. I replaced a st Croix mojo 6'8 m-xf spinning rod that was just a tad too stout for what I wanted. I loved that rod, but needed something that was a bit lighter powered. I would say it's close to a st Croix ml-xf. I haven't fished with it yet as here in Canada it's still winter :(. Been playing with it and it feels "right".

Definitely get a medium if you want to fish senkos.  I'd suggest paying a little more for an eyecon or premier 66mf

I wouldn't consider your new rod a replacement... there's room in any smallmouth/walleye arsenal for both a medium and medium-light spinning rod.

Agreed, but forgot to mention I also have a fenwick hmg 6'9 ml-f rod. Good for open water situations.
