MF rod OK for plastics?

Recommended Posts

I have used MH rods exclusively for plastics. I recently got a 7'2" MF rod ( Cumara -got a good deal ), can I use this for T-Rig and weightless senkos ?

Of course, I wouldn't go throwing 1oz jigs into heavy cover but for average t-rigs, weightless plastics, shakey heads, tubes, etc. it should be a great rod.

Absolutly..Yes, it will work, I have a spinning, and a BC, that are MF for plastic's, I even throw spinners, and weightless plastics with them too. I have to say, in some cases I would prefer a mhf..I'm saving up for my custom made mhf..

I have a MF All Star G40X that I used as my soft plastic rod. Yours should work perfect!

Just to make sure. You are talking about Medium Power Fast Action and not Moderate fast action correct? I dont like mod. fast action for plastics but some people do.

Med. Power Fast Action fine for most single hook baits

? Power Med. Fast Action fine for treble hook applications.

I fish soft plastics strating from a UL all the way up to a XH. It 's a matter of:

1.- rigging the bait to compensate the power of the rod.

2.- using the right hook setting technique for the power of the rod.

exactly the action is what you are looking for in a soft plastic rod.  Fast or extra fast is what you want. So when you say you got a MF I assume its a medium/fast action and you should be fine with that assuming you aint gonna being throwing to heavy cover.

I use a medium fast 6'8 cumara spinning for a lot of tubes and weightless plastics. Also inline spinners and basically anything light weight. This rod casts a fat ika or a 5" senko like a rocket

I also have a 6'8 medium heavy extra fast casting i use for weighted plastics. 1/4 oz tubes or heavier. Hollow belly swimbaits

When its spinning i prefer a medium and when its casting i prefer a MH.
