best bass 2 piece casting rod under 150$

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm quite new to bass fishing and I'd like to buy a 2 piece casting rod MH under 150$ (i Know.. you would avoid the 2 piece rods, but I want to bring the rods with me to Italy once I'm done in the US). I'll fish mainly from the shoreline. I already own a St Croix Premier spinning rod 7.1 Medium. I've seen the 13 Omen and the St Croix Mojo bass. Which reel at reasonable price would you use with this rods ??

Any suggestion is welcome.

 

I would consider buying a pre owned rod btw...

 

Thank you

 

Gerardo

   I'm a shorecaster, and I have the Mojo Bass 7'1" MH/F 2-pc. Good rod. I formerly had the 7'1" M/F. It was nice, but I needed more backbone. I have used the Daiwa Fuego CT100, the Shimano Curado 70, the Shimano Casitas 150 HG and the Shimano Curado 200i with these rods. Best match was the Casitas 150 and the M/F using 12 lb InvizX. Next was the MH/F with the Fuego CT100, used as a spinnerbait rig. I put 12 lb. Big Game on that reel. I have a new rod for the Casitas now, and the performance is better overall. The new rod, however, is twice the price.

   2-pc Mojo rods are good, but not magic. I prefer the 1-pc, if I could use them.

   I handled the Omen 2-pc. It seemed heavy and clunky to me.

   I know of no other 2-pc casting rods that I would recommend in your price range.       jj

Check out Shimano's JDM Bass One XT on e-bay. I've got one paired with my Chronarch MGL and it feels much more refined than its price point. You can't tell it's two piece. Handle is identical to Zodias and rod weight is very light.

I just picked up a st croix mojo, 2 piece, rod from tackle warehouse.  On sale it was $113 . I love it,  it is a great rod with a lot of back bone. You might want to concider it.

I would stick with the Premier. You'll have more choices of length and power than other models and brands.  Plus made in the USA unlike the mojo.  I have Revo reels on my Premier rods

For a casting rod your best bet if you can find someone selling one is  a used  St Croix Avid. New either the Mojo or the Premier. If you want a spinning rod I think Fenwick Hmgs are still made in a 2 piece.

Are there bass in Italy? When I visit family in the Netherlands they have Pike and walleye(zander) but no bass.

  Only 1 or 2 2-pc rods.  Mojo has a few more choices.

I stand corrected.  In spinning rods they have a 2 piece for just about everything.
