Need Help On Picking Baitcasting Rod

Recommended Posts

I am going to be buying a new baitcasting setup soon.  For the reel I will more than likley get a Abu-Garcia Black Max, or a Revo maybe.  I can't decide on which rod.  I am looking in the $70 range.  I found a couple that look nice.  I want to get a 7 foot, medium.  I will mostly be using a senko, or t-rigged soft plastics.  Heres the ones I found so far, which do you think is the best, or another suggested one in the price range.  Any suggestions are welcome, thanks.

So, everyone agrees on the All Star ?  It isn't because it comes with a free gear bag, is it ?  Also the 7 foot medium is a good choice for soft plastics in South Florida Lakes?

Dangle,

Seriously take my advice in the other thread that I responded to you earlier this week.

Your just going to waste money buying from Basspro with shipping charges, taxes, and rod fees.

http://www.***.com/

Go here and browse around. If they don't have a rod that your looking at then give them a ring and work with them.

In the end paying for a 70 dollar rod at Basspro will cost you almost 90 smackers after charges. *** will grant you free shipping, no tax, and no rod fees.

Check these rods out. I have this rod and for the price it's a very very nice rod. Lifetime warranty and you will pay as much for this as you would those other rods at Basspro after shipping.

I would go with the 6'10" MH Extra Fast tip. Same rod I have and it fishes jigs and plastics very well.

$89 dollars shipped.

You can also take a look at the last Citica model that they have in stock. 85 dollars can't be beat for this real. A tad big but when it comes to it your not going to get a better real for the price. I have three Citicas and love them all.

Fletchero a respected member here is also selling some reels here on the forums. You can grab a Revo S from him for 75 bucks. I had a Revo S myself but prefer the Citica. Anyway more options for you.
