Whats A Good Rod For Plastic Fishing, Jigs, And Spinners?

Recommended Posts

Well i am looking to getting a new rod in the 100-150$ range and less if it is worth it. Well i mainly soft plastic and jig fish with the occasional spinner bait and hardbait fishing. I was looking for a rod that is specialty for plastics and jigs or even a rod that is good for anything. I use spinning reels, and i am most likely getting like a $60 baitcaster with some cheap line and tie on a drop shot sinker and pratice casting in my back yard while fishing with my spinning reel. What rods/reels would you suggest for my fishing style and again please no baitcasting suggestions unless they are a cheap rod to practice with.

The new Rage line from St Croix is at the top of your budget at $150 but this is a quality blank and light weight with micro guides. Go with the 7'1" Med.

Stretch your baitcaster buget another $17 and grab a BPS Pro Qualifier on sale for $79. The quality is light years ahead of anything else you'll find in the <$100 range.

A good medium heavy rod will work for all 3 of those applications, in the 7' range. I would suggest looking at the Kistler Mirco guide Carbon Steel rod, it's within your price range or maybe even one of the magnesium rods. Super light and very sensitive. As for the reel, I also like the BPS pro qualifier for the price, which I just bought one.

Doesn't really matter what rod but I would suggest the Abe Garcia Veritas or maybe if you can look into the Shimano rod series, they look awesome.

But whatever you get I would suggest a 6'8-7'2" in a MH-F

a rod you should look at is the Falcon Lowrider LFC-5-17 XG MH/MF. a 7 foot rod that is "made" for deep cranks which tells me its a good all around rod. its a rod that goes on every trip i go on.

The Cabelas Xmlti is in your price range while it is on sale. I just picked up the XmltiS693-1a which is the spinning model to use for senkos and fat ikas and some other plastics. The rod is very light and very sensitive and is one of my rods that is always in the truck with me now. Regular price is $200 and on sale for $120.
