Hello, I am new to this site, but have been an enthusiast bass fisherman for nearly 30 years. For the last few years I have been searching for a rod in 7'6" that can handle 3/4-1 1/4oz heavy, slow rolled spinnerbaits in water from 10'-20' in depth.
I prefer graphite for this presentation and a fast action as well. For comparison, I really enjoy the 843 and 844 IMX from GLoomis as well as the CB 847 for this application, but none of these rods are the 7'6" length I am looking for.
I will be paring this rod up with either a Calcutta TE GT 100 or Daiwa Big Bait Special. Line will likely be 14-17lb mono or co-poly.
Please advise on what rod or blank would be rec'd for this tech.
Thanks in advance.
