Short baitcasting rod.

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a short 5'6" or 6' baitcasting rod with a regular grip (not a pistol grip) that could be used to fish a variety of different lures.  It will be paired with a Daiwa Advantage reel.  I would like to stay under $100.

I normally use 6'6" rods but I have found I like the shorter rod when casting to tight spaces from the banks.

Thanks.

If I am going to be using this for multiple lures do you think I would be better off getting a M or MH?  Mostly I would be fishing cranks and traps but also the occassional jog or plastic.

For my short rods, I use both a G.Loomis GL2 and a St.Croix Premier. Both of them are 6' MH, the St.Croix seems to be more of a true MH though. If you are going for one all-purpose short rod, I would look at the St.Croix Premier 6 M'(PC60MF).

I fish mostly ponds so I use short rods too. I have a 6' St. Croix Premier. From what I hear you'd be better off to go with the St. Croix Avid though.

Avid's are well over $100.  St.Croix Premier PC60MH/F is a decent choice.
