Topwater Rod Questions

Recommended Posts

I have researched the forum for answers to a good all around topwater rod. I have learned that there is no "one rod does all" when it comes to topwater. I am specifically looking for help on what to use for throwing buzzbaits. Shimano states that a medium/heavy extra fast crucial could be used. I can only assume that most would think that an XF action would be too fast. Here are the rods I have to work with:

Dobyns 704C: Probably too heavy of a rod for buzzbaits

Compre 6'10 MH/XF: I would think it would be too fast

BPS Cranking Stick 6'6 M/F: more moderate than fast action

Avid or Crucial 6'6 MF ( in near future):?

Just looking for any input you may have.Thanks for your help.

This one will "do it all":

St. Croix Avid AVC66MF with a soft tip. This is an all-around rod

for treble hook lures, spinnerbaits and buzzbaits, but is especially

well suited for working jerkbaits and topwater lures.
