Spinning Rod Advice

Recommended Posts

I am selling my Fenwick Eagle GT and looking for an upgrade in the $100-$150 range. I want something mainly for plastics that has a good backbone...What do you guys think? I did post this rod the other day but no one got back to me.

St. Croix Avid AVS68MXF if you can find it on sale.

Otherwise, it's $180.

Between the Avid ($170) or a Kistler Helium LTA ($155) what would you go with?

Thanks

I would go with the highest rated graphite rod I could find as long as the line test and bait weights are within the paramaters of what I will be throwing.

I guess the Shimano Cumara is out of the question at this time????  ;)

I bought the St. croix AVID AVS70MF and the AVS68MXF this winter and i just love the mxf. Granted i have no experience with upper end rods. But this rod is just great with plastics, i can feel the fish inhale the bait and my hook ups have greatly improved with this rod. ;)

That's the rod that made me sell almost all of my other rods and replace them with St. Croix.

Ive really never fished a rod that isnt MH for plastics....does this have enough backbone?

I can't speak for the Avid, but I fish a Kistler Helium 6'9 MHF throwin worms & tubes and Love it. By far my favorite stick!

Would definately give it a look if I were you Vinny!
