help with a decent spinnerbait setup

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I'm looking to get a new rod to pair up with my revo SX for an all around spinnerbait setup. I've been flippin mostly, so trying to extend my trade skill.

I guess I'll be throwing in areas where i'd use mostly 3/4 oz.

Can you recommend a rod or rod stats? looking around 100-200.

thanks,

id go 6'6" to 7', medium heavy or heavy, fast action.

6'6" for accuracy, 7' for longer casts.

bigfruits is right with the lengths but with the 6-10 you sort of meet in the middle with the accuracy and the casting length ability should have opted for the 6-10 myself

I fish both of the rods below. One's 6'6" the other is 6'10".

The shorter rod is great for throwing at targets a bit closer and the longer stick will get you a little extra distance. These rods are very attractively priced right now.

I don't know how you feel matching your sx with a Quantum rod ~ is that allowed ?

Thanks guys.

I think theres a law against matching Revo's with quantums, but I'm a lawbreaker.

Can you guys compare this rod to a St croix Mojo and a Loomis IMX? I have the two, and would like to at least get an idea of what im buying if i go with the quantum Tour PT.

Thanks again

I know its against the rules but It can only make that ABU better

just kidding yes I have fished with the Mojo alot of similarities but overall had to stick with Quantum loved the speed and the feel when paired with a burner reel, but its all in what you like is what matters

Sorry I can not help you with a comparison regarding the Mojo or the Gloomis.  I'm sure others can and will.

My favorite spinnetbait rod is the Crucial CRCX70H.  It has the ability to put a tremendous amount of force into a hookset at long range, it is sensitive enough to fish ligh spinnerbaits, and it can really rip a biat when I'm working grass or slop.

It's one of the more accurate 7' rods that I've fished, as well.  You sacrifice a little accuracy with it, because it doesn't load as easily as..say an IMX..in roughly the same class.

One of my partners fishes a SBR812C and loves the heck out the rod.  @ $215 it's a pretty darned good value IMO.  I'd like to own one, but I really can't justify it.

Look into the All-Star Platnium.  Their original retail price is 150.00 and they are selling on TW for 68.00 now.

I would go with a 6'6" or 7' M to MH

Instead of the mojo I highly recommend the e21 carrot stix "crankin" stix 7ft 2in Medium Moderate. It behaves like a medium heavy and is quite sensitive and extremely versatile. It can handle spinnerbaits and crankbaits quite well. Even the heavier ones.
