Swimbait rod questions?

Recommended Posts

I plan on throwing some swimbaits a little this year.  The biggest one will probably be the Mattlures ultimate bluegill(2oz).  I don't have a rod rated for over 1 1/4, but I would prefer not to get just a swimbait since I don't really know how much i'll be throwing them.  So i'm thinking that if I could get a rod that I could fish swimbaits, deep cranks and some deps realizers(1.5oz) that I just got that would be great.  Problem is that buy looking at swimbaits rods online fast-xfast action seems to be preferred, but would be horrible for treble hook lures.  If I got a MH  moderate action(cranking stick) rated for lures up  to 2.5oz could I use it productively for swimbaits?  Or is the moderate action a big no no in swimbaits?
