So I broke my rod!!!! Need New rod selection help

Recommended Posts

Ok, I broke my favorite rod yesterday during my tournament. I closed the livewell door on it... Yes I know very rookie of me. But this rod has been my favorite for over 10 years. Never let me down, and I let her down in this fashion.

Now I used the rod for crankbaits and light swimbaits. I know isn't meant for it, but I loved it. I literally knew the action of this rod so well I could throw just about any lure with it, even senkos. I used it as a striper rod as well.

So I had a Casting Berkley x-tra IM6 X50-7' MH, Medium Heavy Action. Lure weight 3/8 - 1.5 ounces. Line weight 12-25.

It had a soft tip, kind of whippy. And was graphite.

Can anyone recommend a similar rod, I would like something that maybe able to handle something a little heavier weight maybe up to 2-3 ounces, but still able to throw 3/8. I know some companies under rates there rods.

Any recommendations, I thank you in advance for. All prices ranges.

Why is that?

i assume because i suggested buying the same rod you broke. as far as i know Capt. Obvious doesnt make rods.

I was implying that it should be obvious that BLee couldn't find the same rod by the fact that he asked for a different type of rod. Surely he would have already tried to replace the broken rod that he loved so much with the same rod, right?

Just joking around  ;D

when he built mine for me he sat on the phone with me for like 20min and went over every detail of the rod. i think i ended up paying like 155 for mine and 155 for my dads including shipping.
