finesse spinning rod

Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for a new finesse rod, the rod will be used for shaky head, wacky rigs, drop shot, and weightless worms. i have looked at the dobyns savvy series, they look pretty nice. what are some other options that you would recommend? :-?

Depending on your budget and preference for grip styles...

St. Croix Avid- about $180 retail

AVS68MXF

AVS69MLXF

St. Croix Legend Tournament- about $230 retail

LTBS68MXF

LTBS69MLXF

For over $300 you can check out the Legend Elite and Legend Extremes too.

Check out the G. Loomis DSR and SHR series as well.

Dobyns makes an excellent finesse blank,

as does Powell and Damiki.

Without a price range, I would HIGHLY recommend the Dobyns 702 Spinning Rod. Perfect for everything you listed and much much more. Amazing all around spinning rod.  I would go with the Champion in the $200 range, or the Savvy if you're looking to spend under $150.

I could understand the use of a ML power stick for ultra fine wire hooks in open water conditions but could never go that light where heavy cover is close by, and where I fish thats typically the norm.  A ML, for me, makes for a good panfish stick but would be the wrong choice for 2+ lb bass.  However, I witnessed my 8 yr old son (then 7) haul in a 17" smallie on steroids with his 5'6" UL last year so maybe I need to reconsider.
