Light Texas Rig Spinning Rod

Recommended Posts

Guys and Gals I  am looking for a new spinning rod for light weighted texas rigs , 1/16, 1/8,& 3/16 weights,but with enough back bone to set the hook and $0 to $200. Any suggestions for a rod for this type fighting. Right now I use a Abu Vengence 6'6" Med / Fast tip?

How about dead in the center of your budget: the Fenwick HMG in M/F for $100. It fishes on the heavier side of M, but it can still sling light weights, giving you backbone and castability.

I also endorse the HMG, an excellent-value rod at $100, and the medium is stout enough for good hooksets on a texas rig for a spinning rod.

 

At the top of your budget, have a look at the MF Fenwick Aetos, still enough backbone but also super sensitive, and the 6'6" and 7'0" models are almost an ounce and a half lighter than the same models of the HMG:

Kistler Helium 3 Light Medium Heavy Fast. Comes in 6’8” and I think a 7’0”. Rated for 3/16-7/8oz. Great stick and versatile for those who like spinning gear for more then the lightest finesse.

Daiwa Tatula 6'6" or 6'8" medium rod. I use it for that exact presentation and for 5/16 finesse jigs. Perfect for both.

Super light and sensitive.

I went with the Tatula med/fast 7' and love it so far.

Nice, I wasn't able to hold one so I went with the shorter versions. Great line of rods.
