New ! Rod

Recommended Posts

Ok I have been reading a bunch of threads trying to find the right Power and Action rod to be paired up with my Shimano Curado  201E7 reel that I ordered today.  

 Here is my situation, I fish from shore mostly small farm ponds.  I primarily use Plastics and have been using a Shimano sahara 2500fd with BPS Xtreme Rod 6'6" MH Fast spinning setup.   I am looking to use the Baitcaster for plastics as well as light spinnerbaits, frogs and topwater baits and some crankbaits ( a little of everything).

 I had my eye on a St. Croix MOJO 7' MH Fast  or should I be looking at something else???? I have around a 100.00 Limit

As always, everyone on here has always been very helpful  and I really appreciate it!!

I would say put in a little more money and get either a Powell Max 702c or 703c or a Kistler Magnesium 7'MH or 6'10''MH.  For the $100 mark the mojo is good but there are also the Kistler Carbon Steel and Falcon Original and Lowrider and loads of other rods now and to come shortly in that range

Save a little more and get a Powell 705C and you will never look back!!!!

Ok I am checking out these other rods right now.

@dink  is this the one you are talking about ?

   Powell Casting Rod 7' Mag-Hvy EF 705C

If so do you think the MAG-Heavy would be ok for my needs??

Yes that's the one and i am sure it would be ok! Many are detoured by the ratings on the Powell rods IMO. They are pretty overrated in power and actions though. The 705C is more like a MH/F than Mag H/ Ex F! There is no difference that i could find between the 704C and the 705C really! I really think you would like it. Hey, if you don't i will buy it off you man, LOL!

GBlanks,  I push these rods alot. They are great rods at great prices, I DO NOT get any royalties from it so Please dont think it. They have a couple on thier eBay store right now or you can call and talk to Larry Mitchell and he'll be more then happy to offer suggestions. Its worth a look.

The 705c would be a good choice.  I have fished the 705 and 704 and think there is a slightly different feel to each but both are good rods

Hey BigRick  I know you also mentioned a Kistler and they seem to stock them at Bass Pro so I might check that one out as well since BPS is only 10min from my house.  Would the Senko special work 7' MH Fast the Magnessium TS model

Thanks!!!!!!!

Hey I just wanted to thank everyone who helped out!  I just ordered a Kistler Senko special 7' MH Fast the Magnessium TS  From Tackle Warehouse!  I paid the 10.00 extra for overnight so I should have it in my hands  tomorrow  ;D Cant beat that 10.00 for overnight from CA to SC.  

    Now I just have to figure out what to spool my curado up with :)

 

Thanks again!

I have this exact rod except mine says Small Swimbait Special   but the exact same specs.  I have been fishing plastics, tubes, small jigs, and small spinnerbaits and love it.
