Skeet Rods?

Recommended Posts

I did a search to see what everyone was thinking about the new Skeet Rods.  Any thoughts?  Im in the market for a new rod under $150.  Bought a Carrot a few months ago and love it. Just want to make sure Im keeping my options open. Whats it going to be?

I agree on the compre or falcon.  but on the falcon side i'd go with the bucoo.  I think it might be the lightest most sensitive rod @ that pricepoint (that I've used). only thing is with the bucoo,  if you want a med/heavy action, go with the heavy and so forth. I think their actions are a little lighter than advertised

I played with one at BPS, and liked it. Interesting you say you liked the CarrotSticks bc that is what it most reminded me of. I didn't look long bc the color scared me away lol. But they appeared really nice for the money.

They are so new I doubt you'll get many real on the water reviews yet. Gonna have to buy one and tell us what you think.

i like the Skeet rods. IMO a much better rod than the Mojo. if you want to spend that whole $150 a Lowrider is a good bet.

Reese rod is HEAVY.  Check out the Cat rods on their website.  Limited actions but great rods for the budget.  Of course Basscat doesn't make rods, the people that make them are in the USA.  HMMMM who could that be???

Falcon, Avid, St Croix would be other choices if you are buying off the rack.

I am fortunate to have a Bass Pro nearby, so I stopped in to get my hands on some new rods. I'm in the same ballpark you are. I compared the Skeet Reese, Vendetta, BPS Carbonlite, and Bucoo. The Skeet rods were pretty heavy. The heaviest of the group for sure. They were a little whippy for my liking as well. My choice: Falcon Bucoo. Made in USA (big plus for me), extremely lightweight, well balanced, quality components. Couldn't ask for a better rod at the pricepoint.

Stay with the Carrots. Best rod available for the money IMHO. I own 8 now and will buy more. I have not used any of Skeets rods.Just held one or 2 at a bait shop. Can not really judge much from that. But im bias, and loyal to carrots, unlike some pros ::)
