The New Shimano Crucials

Recommended Posts

I'm not asking for opinions on it, I had an old one and loved it but the rods were a little overrated, my M fished like a ML.

Does anybody know if the ratings on the new version are more true now? Was thinking about picking one up after Christmas, but not if they're still a little soft. I need a good 7' M/XF and if they're still overrated i'll just pick up a Powell Max instead.

I have the 7.2 mxf it's an awsome rods for under 3/8 and will work for half ounce. The reel seat is one of the best I've used

Would the power and action make a good finesse jig and plastics rod? Looking for something good for flukes, small jigs, and maybe an occasional jerkbait, all under 1/2 ounce.

The reel seats are something I am concerned with. I held many different rods at the store and some seats where looser than others. On a few of them, I can just flick my finger and the seat would move easily.

I didn't mount any of the rods onto a reel, but I am wondering is the reel seat secure after putting a reel on it? Do they lock into place?
