XFast or Fast Action for Topwater?

Recommended Posts

I like throwing chug bugs and Pop-Rs, they are my confidence baits.  I recently purchased 2 St. Croix Avids (go Reeds!).  

I saw in a St. Croix catalog that they recommend topwaters for their LTBC68MXF rod.  I purchased both an AS66MF and AS68MXF.  Which of these rods would you recommend to use topwater lures?  Thanks.

Both will get the job done. The only reason why I use a fast action rod over an extra fast because I feel like I can work the spook better with it.

Well, either will work, but what you really want is Moderate Action for all treble hook lures:

Also 2 of my favorite baits. I throw those baits on a 5'6" med power, fast tip. For my buzzbaits I use a 6'6" medhvy, fast tip. I would use the AS66MF for your trebled tops.
