Need help choosing a rod.

Recommended Posts

OK guys, (and gals).  :)

These are the rods I am considering.  They are at the top end of my finances, at this time.  Give me your pros and cons.

I am looking for a worm/jig/split shot all purpose rod here.   These are all spinning rods, as that is what I prefer for these uses.

Pricing is basically off of BPS, other than the B&R rod.

Thanks

At the price point of the Daiwa and the B&R, you could upgrade the Compre to a Crucial.  I have one of each of the Compre (6'6" MH) and Crucial (7'2" ML) spinning rods and I really like them both, though I've only had them a few weeks.  I'm also considering the Energy, though, to replace a cheaper spinning rod, and I've heard some good things about it here on the forum.  They look really nice and I've seen them on eBay for $70.  Unfortunately, I don't have any other info on the other rods you listed.

Go play around with them and see what feels best. That Quantum PT is tough to beat. it was the surprise of the year for me as far as gear goes. VERY underrated....I have 2 of them.

I have a Compre and would recommend it. But one thing... You have a $129 rod on there and so I ask if you've considered a Crucial? At that price the Crucial can't be beat.

The Quantim rods have intrigued my but they are  not available in my area so given your choices, either the Compre or gamble with the Quantum.
