Need a little help

Recommended Posts

For the past month or so I've been researching and looking for a topwater rod that will suit my needs to throw jerkbaits (mostly LC Pointer 100's that I am accumulating). I have never been a huge jerk bait guy, in fact I made the mistake of overlooking them for a long time.

I made it my goal to utilize them this fall. After quit a bit of research I decided to go with the Kistler Mag Cast Rod 6'8" Med Top/Jerk 1/8-3/4. This rods been sold out at a few places for the duration of my searching for it. It is $150 new from TW available the end of this month.

I recently got an offer for a Powell Powell Crank Cast Rod 6'8" Med 684CB 1/4 - 3/4. I was curious if anyone has had experience with this rod?

Also if anyone would like to throw out recommendations on a jerk bait / top water rod I will take them into consideration as well and it would be appreciated.

I can only recommend what I use, St. Croix Avid AVC62MXF. I'm 5-7, so a guy around 6' could probably go with the oft recommended 6-6 length. I like the XF taper due to the fast recovery after the snap. I generally throw POinter 100, XR-10, Flash Minnow 115, and similar. If I was throwing bigger, I'd definitely look at something in MHF, as the slower, stiffer tip action would suit bigger baits better.

Mine is a St. Croix Avid AVC66MF. This rod is firm enough to maneuver

topwater lures, but the tip is soft to cushion treble hooks and surging

fish. This is an ideal rod for both topwater and jerkbaits.
