i know the veritas is a little "better" in general but i wanted to see what everyones opinions were on which one to use for jigs/texas rigs and which one to use for crankbaits or anything else. i was planning on buying both at the BPS sale this weekend.

I think you would be fine with the Vendetta 6'9" rod for jigs and worms. I didn't like the Vendetta 7' crankin' rod. There is a crankbait specific Veritas rod, actually 2.

Veritas would be my pick based on they got a 3year warranty over a 1 year warranty for an additional $10. Also, there are crank specific rods in the Veritas lineup.

I agree,and the Veritas is very lite, the Vendetta is a tad bit more heavy. I have both rods and and I like them but I would take the Veritas every time!

You could fish both rods with jigs/T-rig's but the think the Veritas has more sensitivity. If you want a crankbait rod I would look into a glass rod or glass/graphite rod. I think that these two rods are too stiff of a tip for cranks.

My preference is the Veritas. Its lighter and has better balance, in my opinion.

That said, I own mutliple Vendettas as well and I throw them regularly. They are light and strong as well.

You can't go wrong with either rod, but the Veritas would be my first choice if the $99 price tag is within your budget.

To me, the biggest difference between the two besides color is the guides, either rod will be fine, I have a Vendetta and was very pleased and it is the lowest price rod I own but it goes out with me every trip, it is versatile and a fantastic caster with a lot of backbone. Whatever you choose will work.
