low budget swimbait stick.

Recommended Posts

I just started fishing swimbaits, and need some help with a rod!! i mostly fish smaller swimbaits(6in max), but some of them get pretty heavy and the only other rod that could handle it is my flippin' stick, and i don't want to waste time switching baits. does any one have any suggestions?

I've heard good things about the Okuma swimbait rods, and the Diawa Light and Tough rod is on sale at Tackle Warehouse. Both are around $100.

Just got my Okuma 7'11" Heavy 1 to 6 oz baits. So far I have thrown my 6" hudds, 6" BBZ with it. Overall the rod performs pretty good. Btw, I'm using a Chronarch 101 with 55# Samuri braid.

My only small gripe is the plastic reel seat. I know 3 other guys that have used their Okuma's for sometime..no problems. This rod will handle 8" baits easily..so for the $$$ I'd say it's a good deal. Re: the Diawa...the rated lure weight was to narrow for my liking, so I got the Okuma..oh, and it's 109.99+tax shipped.. :)
