looking at getting a spinning rig for throwing hair jigs and weightless plastics. not sure what the differences in these two rods would be and am unable to see them upclose. i was looking at 6'8 mxf spinning. any thoughts on the differences between them.

any help would be great .

For that application Avid is great unless you prefer split grip...

I have some of each. Love both the Avid line and the LT. I personally don't see why the LT line is worth fifty to sixty bucks more. While fishing, there's not much difference between them. The only time I would choose an LT over an Avid is to get a particular length, power and action unavailable in the Avid lineup. There are quite a few more models in the LT series.

You will not go wrong with either.

I'd say that's a great rod for that application either way. If you like split grips, go LTB, if not... Avid. I doubt that you'd notice much of a difference performance wise between the two. I personally like my LTB better, but it probably has more to do with the looks of it than performance over the Avid.

I agree with what most others have said. I have both and use them for weightless, t-rigged senkos and can't really tell a difference between the two.

Knowing what I know now, I would just stick with the Avid and save the extra money but you won't be unhappy with either.

LTB are lighter, and use better guides. Not a ton of difference in sensitivity, but some. The teaser and sweeper are definitely preferable to the AVC70MF and AVC70MHF in feel applications, all of which I own.

an alternative, if you like both the LTB and full grips, the legend tournament walleye series has a 6'8" mxf with the same blank as the LTB and a full grip... i use my les68mxf (legend elite) for that purpose and it works great. i also have an avid avs63mxf and its a very nice rod (especially at $160). i think either way you go would be a great choice, and keep in mind, if you buy the avid and dont find it exactly what you want, you can upgrade through st croix!

I have an LTB, and I get to fish my buddies Avid in the same power, action and length. Honestly, both are great rods. However, personally, I like the split grip and lighter weight of the LTB. I also think it is a little more sensitive, and has a bit more power in the butt section than the Avid. On the other hand, the Avid actually feels a bit more balanced with the same exact reel. My buddy fishes my LTB, and feels pretty much the same way about both rods. However, he says he's happy with his Avid and wouldn't spend the extra $50 or so on an LTB.

So, in the end, it's a matter of preference, or what you want to spend.
