Anyone using a Powell 683C?

Recommended Posts

I want to add another rod for fishing lighter soft plastics. I'd mostly be using 5" Senkos, 3/16oz T-rigs, 1/8oz - 3/16oz shakey heads and flukes. With Powell's new lower price point they seem like a bargin but I'd like some more info before pulling the trigger.

I am concered about the balance point with this rod. I will be using a Steez reel and possibly a 50MG, so the reel won't be adding much weight to balance out the rod. Would this be an issue for "tip up" applications? How about sensitivity? Any other comments or suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

The Powell 683c is an excellent rod in it's price range.  It is sensitive and light.  I have a few Powells and like them all.  Do a search on Powell 683c to find information on them.  Also, go to tackletour.com and look in the archives for an article on the 683c from three years ago.  It was given the Editor's Choice Award.
