Powell Max Rods

Recommended Posts

hey all,

I am debating on which rod to pick up after Christmas.  I have decided on a Powell Max Casting rod..  the models I am looking at are a 705c, 704c, and a 703c...

I fish a lot of grass and structure but i wouldn't call it "heavy" structure..  ie. artificial crates and boxes in the water, occasional trees and stumps.  I fish in central PA so its not like we have 6+lb bass swimming around at will... 

Im planning on using this rod with texas rigged senkos and jigs...  Any suggestions?  Oh and I will have the rod paired with a Revo of some sort... either S, Sx, or STX with 15-17lb Fluoro.. 

Thanks for the help

I would say go with the 704c.  It's a great all around rod for t-rigs, c-rigs, jigs, spinnerbaits.  I have the 705c and it's better for heavier cover.

Yeah I was leaning towards the 704... most of my rods are MH and i dont even think i have a heavy rod besides my flippin stick...  thanks for the input..  what do you consider heavier cover just out of curiosity?

What size jigs?  I had a 703 that was great for senkos, but was a touch too light for larger jigs.  I really liked it for T-Rig with 1/4oz weights.

I wouldn't go punching thick mats with the 704c but for most applications it's the way to go
