Small Swimbait Rod

Recommended Posts

I am wanting a small swimbait rod. Specifically a Big EZ rod. A Big EZ with a 1/8 weighted hook weighs roughly 3/4oz so I do know that I want a heavy power rod. Maybe even a heavy +. Should I be looking for a moderate or a fast action rod? Right now, I am using my MBR844 but IMHO, the MBR844 is more of a MH +. If it's a fast action that I need, then I will get a MBR845. If it's a moderate action, then I have nothing in mind.

John I have been using a st croix legend extreme medium heavy moderate action for that exact application. It's a XC72MHM rated for 3/8 to 1 ounce and I have been real happy with how well it preforms. Casts extremely well & has plenty of power.

Right now my small swimbait rod is the shimano cumara 7'11' MH extra fast action (CUCX711MH). To be honest though i have not yet had the chance to use it as all the water in Quebec Canada is frozen solid. However I did read some very positive remarkd on this rod, which is what prmpted me to pick it up.

MBR 842C

Mine is saddled with a Core 50MG. Match made in heaven!

A medium swimbait rod! I never would have figured that for a bait as big as a Big EZ. roadworrior, I know that you were not saying that you throw a Big EZ with the MBR842. I have researched the MBR842 on this site and I have read that you throw the Kitech Swing Impact swimbait with the 842. The 842 is definitely on my 'want list'. I would put my Curado 50E on it. Are you using the smallest Kitech swimbait with the 842?

4.8" Keitech Swing Fat Impact, Shadalicious, Hollow Belly and GYCB Swimming Senko.

I just picked up a couple of bags of the RI Skinny Dippers, but haven't fished them yet.
