Use this for all weightless plastics as well as shakeyhead fishing. Crosses over very well for walleye jigging.

i fished with this combo for a few hours this after noon and its the first time i didnt think the rod was a mistake. its still tip heavy but with a heavier reel its evened things out.

One of the main keys being the braid/fluoro leader or all fluoro for minimal stretch to really stay in touch with the lure.

XF is nice but if your fishing O rings and circle hooks then fast action is fine.

That is great! I use the exact same rig for Wacky. I run 8lb green P-line cxx premium and a 1/0 demon circle hook. :)
