Favorite Short Casting Rods <= 6'3"

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a short casting rod to match a Shimano Chronarch MG 50.  

Figuring that the MG 50 is so light, I'm thinking that I should be looking for a light, finesse type rod.  Lure range from 1/5 to 5/8.  Fast action.

The Powell 633 CEF at <3.4 oz seems like a good match (but it is being discontinued

The 6'3" Zillion looks fantastic, but might be out of my budget

My default rod is a 6'6" MHF Techna AV that weighs < 4.2 oz.

You suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks!!!  :)

i have that very rod

i used it the other weekend and only fished for maybe an hour but i wasnt real impressed with the rod i dont think its as sensitive as they claim it is

my all time favorite rod was my 724 imx g-loomis rod

this is a heavy action rod 1\4 oz -1 oz

but it sure didnt fish like a heavy rod but had all the power u need when the time came that u needed it

i also had my mg 50 on the rod

if your on a budget i would look in to g-blank rod and i have had 3 of them u can pick and choose how u want it

what blank eyelets handle length split grip

That's easy, CRC-63M Shimano Crucial at 3.6 oz's!! I have a new Curado CU200e7 married to one and it is a sweet set up.

Thanks, I have the 6'3" MXF Spinning version of the Crucial.  It's a nice little rod.  If there was a 6'0" Cumara I'd have it already ;)

I've toyed with the idea of a G-Blanks rod, but I'm afraid I'll get caught up in the upgrade/customizing aspect  :)

For the size of that reel i'd lean to a gloomix cr721 imx,6' 3/16-1/2 oz lures,6-12 lb line,would be a really good match,that is what the reel was intended for,lighter weight baits.

Thannks Thomas, naturally an IMX would be my first choice.  Unfortunately, my wallet thinks otherwise ;)

Stupid recession  :)

So, I'm trying to convince myself that I should go with something very light - if it can be found at a "very light" price :D

I guess I would ask why so short a rod?  Rod length would be only a consideration for your heighth.  The Carrot stix are awewome.  I have two of the ltx version.  You can find them for around 129 online.  the shortest in the ltx is 6'6.  but they are sensative and i am going to replace all my all stars with them.  i am using the team sbr1 and sbr2 rods, 6'4 and 6'8 respectively.  the rods are great but need the carrot stix
