Senko Rod Selection

Recommended Posts

I am in the market for a good Senko rod for my wife.  She is 5'2" and currently uses a 6'6" Cara that she loves, but I want to step her up to a Loomis!  Our local bait shop has the MossyBack 7'3" H Carolina rod in stock as well as the IMX 7" H.  The price difference is not a problem, but the Loomis descriptions call their MossyBack 7'2" H (not in stock at the bait shop) their Senko rod.  The only difference I can see between the two MossyBacks is the handle length and overall length.  So should I buy the IMX, MB 7'3", or order the MB 7'2"?

Actually, I would order the BCR893.  This thing is the ultimate Senko Rod (in my humble opinion.)

The BCR893 will be a little to big for her I think, the 7'2" is pushing it really.  The BCR874 that is at the tackle shop is only $220 (suprisingly), I think that if they order the BCR864 it will most likely be ~$280 (they are always high) so I can get a deal on the BCR874 that is why I was wondering if it will pass as a good Senko rod and be able to pick it up in a day or two instead of waiting. And BTW I am considering a T7 but I would like to treat her to the Loomis experience.

I used a MBR844 IMX as a senko and fluke rod for a long time... worked perfect for me but I don't use any of the smaller size senkos or flukes. It's an amazingly versatile rod that you can use for lots of techniques.

I don't own this rod, but among those

"G.Loomis guys" that do, it seems to be

the overwhelming rod of choice. As Lucky

Craft Man stated, "The ultimate Senko rod".

The BCR 874 is a Carolina rig rod which was designed to lob-cast heavy 1oz sinkers. Unless you are t-rigging senkos in really heavy cover I think that better tools exist. Depending on how impatient you are, I would either purchase the 844 (843 would be even better) or I would order the 864 if you are able to wait.

Let us know the exact fishing details (rigging and cover) and perhaps our suggestions would prove more accurate.
