Sure Would Like Your Thoughts on a 2 Piece BC

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! Stuck with a small car and no boat and need a baitcastin rod. Been pretty partial to St Croix for a number of years and use their 2 piece Avids for spinnin. Thinking about teaming a 2 piece 6'6" MF or MHF Premiere with a 200E Curado. Would that be a good multi-task setup? Is there another 2 piece BC you can recommend? Really appreciate comments by all.

They work great as long as you remember to......

check the connection as you are fishing and make sure it is tight.

I have thrown the front half of the rod when casting as I forgot to check the connection and tighten it.

Lucky for me no one was around but I did feel like a dummy.  ;D

Allatooner, been thinking about doing the same think with the same rod.  Once and a while on the spur of the moment I want to hop in my car and run to the water somewhere.  Or sometimes someone calls and says lets go.  Not always taking the truck and boat.

I think that's the perfect rod for me to do just that.  Every time I stop at the local GM to check, all they have is m/m.  Gonna have to just order one.

Right, that's exactly what I'm thinking...just keep it in the car and go!!  I have the same problem, nobody around here has a STC MF or MHF....got any recommendations as to who online is trustworthy?

I would recommend this one:

I have a spinning version of that one and it 's one heck of a rod for the money ( 12,600 yen ). It comes with a rod cover from the factory. To protect it even more you can purchase one of these, great tube for 20 bucks:

Is that the brand I see in T-rigs posts once and a while?  And is there a chance you could convert the yen?  I live a sheltered life. :)

Nope, you didn 't see them in T-rigs posts, you saw them in mine.  :)

12,600 yens = 115 dollars.

How small of a car are you driving? My commuter car is a Hyundai Accent 2dr and I manage to fit my 6'6" and 6'8" one-piece spinning rigs in there along with my tackle bag, PFD, kayak dash, paddle, etc.

Fancy in looks ? probably,

Fancy in price ? hardly, you can 't call a 155 dollars rod "fancy"

I 'm a southern farm boy and 'round my neck of the woods we also got cows, donkeys, sheep n 'goats, we also drive on dirt roads to get to the ponds so there ain 't much difference between a US midwestern farm boyz n 'southern farm boyz 'xcept that we ken feesh year round and that we like pork rinds with spicy sauce for shore lunch. Besides cows don 't reed too good anyhow, they don 't know if u carry a Jap rod or a local one.
