advice on rod selection

Post by tav333 » Mon May 17, 2010 4:26 pm

Im looking for a light baitcast rod that will pair with my shimano citica spooled wiv 10lb spiderwire. Im looking for something thats one piece and would be suitable for bass yellowbelly and smaller river sized cod something that would handle spinnerbaits without to much trouble. My price ramge is about 150 any suggestions?

Hi Mate,

I have a Shimano Tcurve with my Daiwa Zillion Crazy Cranker that is awesome. The Penn Pinpoint Tournament series are great rods as well and they only cost about $100 with Alconite guides. Try Motackle.

If you can pick up a second hand Loomis then you're onto a winner.

If your pulling fish from the stumps then I would go 6kg.

Hope this helps

Leon

Hi mate the Raider Rod is a great rod as well. A good friend of mine has team it with his Sol. Happy Days! 8)

Both the Tcurv and Raider's are great. Although the Tcurv has Sic guides.

Some people will buy cheap rods but I know from my experience there is a difference. Especially with the high end stuff.

Innovater Rods make a good bass rod as well but you'll pay for it. They do have replace the broken section for $60 offer (no questions asked) which is good.

Anyway mate hope it all works out for ya. Happy Fishing.

Leon
