Recommended Posts

If you had to pick one rod, what action and power ,and one reel ,and one kind of line for all the bass fishing you do to use with all your lures and baits what would you use ???? i dont have many poles and i am just curious what the best bet would be for everything.

A 6'6" med fast or MH fast. You can find rods that are labeled med or medheavy that in actuality fall more in one direction or another. The St Croix Avid medium power/fast action feels more powerful and fast that others that I have tried. The Team All Star rod with the same designation feels more light in power and less fast in speed.  The Avid casting 6'6" MF with a Shimano Calcutta 100B or the Team Allstar 6'6" MH with a Citica 200E. One combo costs about 150 dollars less and will be (almost!) just as enjoyable to fish with.

Its not practical cause I do throw alot of weightless plastcs and alot of  baits over 2 ounces, occasionally 4 ounce baits too.

If I had to choose I'd take a medium heavy 7 foot st.croix legend elite, zillion real, and 15 pound cxx line. Although this rod is rated to just 1 ounce I have succesful fished heavier baits up to 2 ounces. If my fishing keeps going the way its headed I might drop the mh for a swimbait rod.

One rod and reel?  Then it would be a 7' MF spinning rod with a 2500 size reel loaded with 20/6 braid.

Can do (just about) everything reasonably, if nothing exceptionally.

That's about what I would pick, but I'd take my 6' Med-Fast IMX, and I've been liking some of the co-polys I've been using lately. Great setup for soft plastics, but versatile that you can throw just about anything with it.

Seems to be about 10 different opinions, confused?

Buy what feels right and what is in your budget and if you made a mistake learn from it, next time you will know exactly what you want.
