What kind of spinning rod?

Recommended Posts

Hey guy's, I just got a Johnny Morris spinning reel for Christmas. I fish tournaments with my dad, and our first tournament is coming up in February. I was wanting to purchase a spinning rod before then so i could be ready to fish. The reel is more of a finesse reel, so I will probably use it for senko, shaky head, etc... So any help we be appreciated, thanks guy's.

Generally, 6 1/2' or 7' Medium Power/ Fast Action.

The St. Croix Avid AVS68MXF would be an excellent

choice.

$ St. Croix Mojo, Shimano Compre

$1/2: St. Croix Avid, Shimano Crucial

$$: St. Croix legend Elite, Shimano Cumara, Loomis IMX

I've used all, but the Cumara.  6'8 Medium X Fast or 7'0 Medium Fast would be a good start.

7'M-MH is what you'll want.

I have a 7'M Damiki Dark Angel and a 7'MH Abu Garcia Vendetta.  I wouldn't recommend the Vendetta, kinda unbalanced and heavy.  For me, the Dark Angel is everything I wanted in a good spinning rod, I use it for all contact applications.  You may want to look at the BPS Pro Qualifier as well.

One of the nicest things you can do for that reel is match it up

with a Johnny Morris Elite 6' 8 med power spinning rod (JXE68MS)

I hate to admit it, but my $200 Johnny Morris Elite is a more sensitive blank

than my $350 Kistler Helium ll LTX.

I like the Avids too.  Fish 'em all the time.  I jumped up to a Legend Tournament Bass LTBS70MF for my spinning rod.   A few extra bucks but I want a real sensitive rod for that soft shaky head bite.
