Shimano Teramar inshore = Good crankbait rod??

Recommended Posts

So hey, I was originally looking at the Shimano Crucial Crankbait spinning rod to use for crankbaits.  But the price point I was aiming for was about $100.  Then I saw that the Teramar inshore rod is also built from TC4 composite material and has the same action as the Crucial Crankbait rod that I was looking at.  I was wondering what people's opinion would be for using the Teramar as a crankbait rod?

Here are the specs for the two rods (I wish Shimano would list the rod weight for each rod like other companies do, but for some reason they don't):

Shimano Crucial Crankbait:

TC4HM construction, 6'8", Med power, Med-Fast action

Shimano Teramar SE:

TC4 construction, 7'0", Med power, Med-fast action

Any input would be helpful.

Fishing buddy of mine uses the Teramar for inshore saltwater.  I believe he uses a 7'0" MH fast.  I am not 100% on the specs, but I know it is a MH and it feels super heavy.  Make sure you handle the rod before purchasing it.  Just my $.02
