do these rods cover most techniques?

Recommended Posts

i am trying to compile the rods i would need for a solid set and i was wondering if you guys think these would pretty much cover it. could you guys give suggestions for other techniques that would fit under the rods listed or other rod type suggestions that may be better than the ones i have listed. thanks again everyone

casting

7'6" H xf for flipping/pitching heavier cover/deepwater jigging/worming

7' MH f for flipping/pitching lighter cover/spinnerbaits/swimbaits

7'M mod. for cranking above 10'/hard jerkbaits

7'6" MH mod. for deep cranking/lipless cranks

spinning

7' M xf for dropshot/shakyhead open water finesse

6'6" M f for skipping/weighless plastics

Looks very similar to what I have got going, except I opted for the 6'6" spinnerbait rod. Also the 7'6" heavy could be used for frog and carolina if you ever plan to do those.

Sounds OK!

The one thing you might want to add is a 6'6 MF casting rod for topwater.

i have a 6'6" spinnerbait rod could that double as a topwater or do spinnerbait rods usually have too fast of a tip?

    Sounds like a great setup!!!!!

    The one thing I would change would be for skipping, instead of getting a M get a MH.

    Just a suggestion though.

i was wondering what is the reasoning behind a MH versus a M?

Everyone has different tastes in what they like in a rods action/power. If you are comfortable with your rods performance than that is all that matters! With that said, you have a mighty fine looking arsenal there! You have all you need to have to cover any situation you may encounter.

fish with them how you plan too and then make adjustments according to  how you feel a different rod might benefit you.

may be your taste , but for topwater lures you don't want that long of a rod ( 7'6'') , a 6'6'' is perfect . it's just very difficult to ''walk'' lures with that long of a rod . now if it was a 7'6'' med. XF , i would love to use it for crankbaits all day ( i want to get one for this purpose) .. ;) btw , i have never heard of anyone using one rod for both of those techniques ( frog and topwater ) i want a heavy powered  rod with a fast tip and for topwater , i want a medium powered rod with a moderate fast tip ... just my OWN opinion  :)
