Looking for a new rod - uses for a 7' medium-heavy/moderate-fast?

Recommended Posts

I've been sorta in the market for another "all purpose rod," that is, a rod that can be used for a somewhat large variety of lures with success (ideally spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, paddletail swimbaits/swimjigs, some topwater like buzzbaits, maybe lipless cranks and bottom baits in a pinch). Currently I'm looking at the Okuma Scott Martin Signature TCS casting rod, the 7' medium-heavy/moderate-fast model. Do you guys think this might match my needs? I'm looking at this rod specifically because it's on sale on tacklewarehouse ($130), but I'm open to any other ideas in a similar price range. Thanks in advance!

It might, I’m probably in the minority but I like to throw spinnerbaits on my fury 705cb($120). I’ve used it for small swimbaits also it did fine.

Do I think that rod will match your needs? Yup! I use 7’ ish fast rods for a lot of things, works for me.

Wow.  Found a 7' M-MF for $88.80.  I've read these rods a very good for the money.  I need another rod like a hole in the head, but this is kind of hard to pass up.

 

I couldn't find a good deal on the 7' MH-MF.  I like its lure range....provided it is accurate....better than the M-MF rod.  I only have one M-MF rod and that is a 7'2" HMG.  The TCS should be a better rod.  Looking like I need another M-MF rod.  :lol:

 

Thanks a lot for the post...........not.

Love that rod!  I also throw spinnerbaits as well as chatter baits, swimjigs (light wire), spooks ploppers, cranks and jerks with it, underrated rod imo, very versatile.

Yup, it’s great for what I wanted it for and a few other things. Can’t go wrong for the price. 

Throw a dc reel on it and it gets even more fun.

Bought it for chatter/spinnerbaits but end up using it for plopper topwater clones (Choppo)
