All around casting rod, Vendetta vs Bucoo

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm looking to pick up a baitcaster rod for all around use. I'm mainly a smallmouth fisherman and spend most of my time using spinning gear but towards the end of last year I started going down to NC and visiting a friend of mine that had moved into the area and we've been going out largemouth fishing.

I'm fine using some of my heavier spinning gear for weightless plastics and such for largemouth but I wanted to get a baitcaster that I can use on other things like spinnerbaits and jigs. I know that it would be optimal to have multiple rods for different applications (Lord knows I have a wide selection for different smallie presentations) but I just currently don't go down there enough to justify the cost.

I have a Daiwa Tierra reel and I'm looking to pair it with a Med 6'6" or 7' rod and I'm trying to decide between the Vendetta and the Bucoo. I've heard of breakage problems with the Bucoo but didn't know if that's really a problem or a few isolated cases. As for the Vendetta I haven't heard anything bad about it, other than a really goofy name.

So I'm posting here to get some opinions on either one of these, and any help is appreciated.

Thanks

The Bucco's have better components than the vendetta.  For that reason alone the Bucco is a better rod.

Have you used the Vendetta?

i own a bucoo and love it. cant feel a whole lot of differance between that and the cara (which fell off the boat) besides the foam grips. cara may be ever so slightly lighter but it gets the job done well, and more, for less. vendetta i have not fished but here nothing but great things about it. i would go bucoo though.

Bucoo... have yet to handle a lighter more well balanced rod for the cash

Here is a link to a review i did when i bought mine.

I was at Bass Pro and felt the BuCoo vs Vendetta vs W&M Skeete Reese vs BPS Carbonlite. Bucoo was lightest, very well balanced, made of good quality component. And it is keeping jobs in this country! So I will be buying the 7'H casting model in a few weeks, then another for DSing this summer. You have to feel them to believe it, but you will be blown away.
