Need help deciding on what model of rod (Mojo)

Recommended Posts

I have selected the Mojo as my first quality rod to go with some of my new quality reels. Baitcasting is my preferred method.

My question is, I have always paired my reels with cheap rods and I am looking to get away from that, the thing I'm struggling with is I really don't know the difference between Fast and MF tips. And I've never owned a Medium action pole only MHeavy.

I fish mostly plastic worms, tubes, jigs, buzzbaits, spinnerbaits, and IKAs, and small rat l' traps and frogs.

I want a good all around rod for these applications. What model of the mojo do you recommend?

Thanks,

Well, the ideal rod for most jig, spinnerbait, and buzzbait fishing is going to be at least 6'6", have a fast or extra fast tip, and normally be MH.  Hook set can be a little tougher with those techniques and you want a rod that can drive the hook home.  Depending on how your frog fishing, that could be the ideal rod for that as well.

For a ratt-l-tap & tubes I'd prefer a MF rod.

If I could only have one MOJO rod for all these....  I guess I'd go with the MBC70MHF.

I have a MBC70MHF on the way that should be here on Thursday according to ups. I plan to use it as a jig, plastic, and frog rod. I'll let you know my initial thoughts when it arrives, although I probably won't be fishing it for another month at least. I would imagine this rod would do what you want it for though. What reel are you planning on using?

Well I have the burner model of the Quantum engergy pt 7:0:1 I think that's the great ratio.

I also have a Abu Revo S as well, but I have no idea what this reel is good for. I actually don't care for it that much. I have no idea what line to use on it for all types of bass fishing as well as what the reel is good for.

Plan on buying a quantum acurrist pt new model this weekend.

You do realize that the action and power of rods are two differant things ?

Now I just need to find a place that has them in stock and shipping is free?

I would go to BPS but I'm not at home now and the BPS around my house is quite a while away. Oh well,,

Any suggestions?

Mine was ordered from fishUSA through amazon.com. It was on backorder for a month, but they might have them in stock now since mine has shipped, and they do offer free shipping
