Recommendations for ultralight spinning rod<$ 100.00


Recommended Posts

Several years ago I bought two Falcon original ultralight spinning rods. At the time they were 60 dollars each.             Moderate action, great cork, and overall very good. I've used them for crappie and stocked trout. Very good rods for the dollars.

I use a Okuma SST travel-spin ($45?).  a three piece.  I wanted it to backpack with after Sierra Nevada trout.  those fish get big and strong and that tiny rod handled them with style.

 

I took it to Peru, and the local fisherman told me to put it back on the boat.  everything would break it.  turned out it was fantastic to fish for bait.  I was catching 1 foot long Pictus Catfish to use as bait. for those that care, a Pictus cat is a very popular aquarium fish.  I had one.

 

my reel is either the size 50 Plueguer, or a 1000 Shimano..

Here's my daughter fishing the same rod with Penn 4200SS on Fulton Beach Pier

(chilly Spring Break)

this was about a month before we replaced it with 7'6" solid-tip and 7'9" tubular-tip XUL Japanese Rockfish rods, and moved up our game.

These were $100 rods that compare to Major Craft 2nd-tier rods, and they're still fishing a dozen years later.

Since this has been resurrected, I am extremely happy with my MajorCraft Finetail fiberglass area rod. Its a blast to fish and ridiculously light and sensitive. Currently paired with a less than ideal Nasci C2000S (too heavy) it still fishes great. 

I know a lot of people won’t give Piscifun reels the time of day but I have the Carbon X and its lightweight at 5.7ounces.

I really have a hard time finding a UL or L rod that I like because most are just too floppy.

 

My wife and I are currently using a pair of Fenwick HMX 6'0 ML/MF for bkuegills and crappie. 

 

They are rated for 1/8 - 5/8, but I really can't imagine loading then up like that. The moderate action flings a bobber rig, small Beetlespin, or small crappy jigs out pretty nice yet doesn't feel quite so whippy.

Thanks to all that replied.  I would up choosing a SC Triumph LF 6' rod.  Once I get a chance to test it I'll let you know if I like it.  Randy

New to panfish and confused.. What power/action and length would be a good starting point.. 50$ and less 

Okuma Celilo 702L-1 is a great little panfish rod for $40

Although it’s $10.00 above your target price I’m going to suggest the new Bass Pro Shop  Microlite rods. I have the higher priced version and highly recommend them. As a bonus BPS has a very generous warranty on their house brand rod’s especially.
