Open up your crystal balls....(rod selection)

Recommended Posts

Here's the criteria (spinning only):

1. Should work for both shakey-head and dropshot.

2. Line will be 20lb braid w/co-poly leader (10lb)

3. Keep cost at $100 (+ or - a buck or two)

Looking for something in the Vendetta, BuCoo, Veritas line of rods, but I'm open to other suggestions.

Ah, OK.  I'm kinda looking for which model number on the suggestions.  I hate buying something sight unseen, but I may have to here.  Is a 7' medium too light for shakey-heads?  Is the 7' MH too heavy for dropshotting?  My mind is going in circles here.  Gotta be one rod for both.

Lamiglas Excel 703 or 704.  I have a 703 with a Pflueger Supreme XT and YoZuri Hybrid 6lb.  Works really well for shaky heads for me. It might be a bit soft/slow for drop shots but the 704 takes care of that.

$100 shipped from that "Warehouse" store.

I love the falcon line of rods. That being said I have talked to falcon and from the sound of it all of the bucoos have more of a moderate action, I would check out the veritas.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.  Sadly, the CarrotStix LTX's at TW are sold out (the one I wanted).  Right now I'm leaning towards Webertimes suggestion on the LamiGlass.  I'm headed out on a gear safari this morning to see what's available locally, but more than likely *** will get the nod...................
