M F for soft plastics?

Recommended Posts

is a M power with F action casting rod good for weightless plastics, mainly senkos, jigs, and spinnerbaits? the ratings on it are 1/8-1 ounce.

That's what I would use it for.

Yes, for plastics with up to 1/4 oz weight. I would go MH power for jigs (mine are heavier than 1/4 oz). I prefer MH with moderate action for spinnerbaits ( and other "faster" moving baits)

That's the rod I would use if I could just go with one.  I don't know how heavy your jigs and spinnerbaits are, but I would definitely want a rod that somewhere in the middle for using all those bait weights.  Since all those baits are single hook (unless you add a trailer or even a treble trailer hook) I like the fast action for setting the hook quickly since they don't get hooked on as easily and quickly as treble hooked baits.

ok i figured it would be the right one. is it just me or do M powers on casting rods seem stiffer than a M power on a spinning rod?

my jigs arent heavy, i like strike kings baby boo.

Medium Power rods are capable of fighting any bass, but makes catching smaller fish more fun. For lures under 1/2 oz, casting is easier, too.

If you already have the rod and are trying to figure out what to use it for, then I would say it will work great. If you have not bought one yet, and are looking, I recommend looking at extra fast action rods too. I prefer working plastics and setting the hook with the extra fast. Either way, buy what you like, like what you buy.

BTW, what rod is a medium power and is rated for 1oz lures??? Most medium heavy rods are only rated in the 5/8-3/4 range for their upper limit.

I was thinking the same thing... Curious what company makes that rod.. My heavy is to 1 1/2oz and my MH are below 1oz.

It is rare but possible:

Lamiglas Competitor CC664 - 3/8 - 1 oz, 8-20 lb line, 6'6"  This is one of my rods and it is a medium action rod according to lami.  I think such rods are not too common. I love this rod.  It has more backbone than any other medium action rod in my arsenal and even my MH compre.
