Getting money for Christmas to buy a rod with....what would you get??

Recommended Posts

I'm getting one Shimano Compre rod for Christmas already, a 6'6" medium heavy, fast tip action rod.  Lure weight is 3/8 to 1 oz.  

I am also getting money as another gift and I planned to get another one of these rods, 6'6" length, basically just like the first one but it might not be a medium heavy.  Instead I was wondering if I ought to get a medium powered rod for the 1/4 oz. range of lures, or do you think the medium heavy rod I listed above would also cover that range even though it says it is for 3/8 and up weights??  If it will then I could focus on some other rod instead like maybe one good spinning rod, or a 6'10" rod for frogging maybe??  

So far my plan was to get the one rod I already know I'm getting, the 6'6" medium heavy, and then see how well it will throw 1/4 oz. baits before I buy the second rod.  Sorry if I've asked questions along this line already, can't remember.  Christmas is right around the corner and soon after I'll be looking for that second rod so I just wanted some quick opinions on what to do.  Thanks.

i think this is gonna be a matter of preference.

have a m/f casting (mbr782) that handles 1/4, 3/16 and even some 1/8 much better than the mh/f casting (mbr783)...you can do it with the mh/f but, in my hands, the m/f loads better and handles those weights better overall, imo.

that said, so will a good m/f spinning...and a good m/f spinning may give you a better all-around balance in your arsenal.

like i said, a matter of preference.

A 6'10'' MH-Heavy action would work well. It would make for a good spinnerbait and frog rod. That is a very good all purpose rod.
