Rod Set-up.....

Recommended Posts

Alright guys....Here is what I have and what I use it for...

St. Croix Avid 7' MH Fast / Curado 201E7

Currently using it for Spinnerbaits, Senkos, Jigs

St. Croix Premier 6'6" MH Moderate / Revo Winch

Cranks - Mostly Shallow to Mid

St. Croix Triumph 6'6" M Fast / Stradic 2500

I usually have a tube or soft plastic rigged on this rod. I would like to swap this rod out for something else. Given it's going to be my lone spinning set-up, what rod would you pair it with and what would you fish with it?

As of right now, I would also like to add 2 more rigs. Both casting (I have a RevoSX here on the shelf looking for a mate.)

What should I pair with the Revo, I am thinking something like 7' M or MH Extra Fast for Jigs and plastics? Any suggestions here?

Lastly I want to add a Flippin' or Pitchin' set-up....even something for tossing Frogs in slop....what's the advice here?

Let me know what you guys think of the line-up and where I may need to tweak...now that I have multiple set-up's I am kinda lost as to where I need to go with rod actions and what to fish with them.....

If you state a price range we can help a lot more.

But, for the plastics/jig rod, I would recommend a 7' MHF or HF, with braid.

Flipping rod should be 7'6 HF, also with braid.

I bet you love that Curado/Avid combo!

I am comfortable spending $200 each on rods.......

You have a TON of GREAT options then!

Dobyns Champion 704c & 764c

St. Croix Avid AVC70MHF & AVC710HMF

Tons of others, too.

I already have an Avid AVC70MHF.......so I should add another?

As for the spinning set-up, what rod and what should I use it for...

AVC710HMF is the Flippin' stick which seems fine to me...

Other ideas? I am trying to close my gaps so I have a rod for every application....

St. Croix Avid 7' MH Fast / Curado 201E7 ///Use this for just spinnerbaits

St. Croix Premier 6'6" MH Moderate / Revo Winch ///Keep using for cranks

Replace your spinning rod with a M/F or ML/F for an all-around light/weightless rig. I say Dobyns Champion 702SF or 703SF.

As for your two new BC rods,

MH/XF - Jigs and Texas rigs, senkos.

H/F-XF - Flipping/Pitching.

Also consider a topwater stick. For topwater I prefer a Baitcasting 6' to 6'6" M/XF

Also there is nothing wrong with having more than one of the same exact rod.
