I have an abu garcia Revo stx with a 7.3 retrieve. Want to use it for spinner/buzz baits. Need some suggestions for a rod to go with it. I am new to bait casting rods and reels, having used spinning rods/reels my entire life. I am thinking that something in a 7' or 7 1/2' rod in either a M or MH action. I will be using 10-15 lb. test to start.
I also have an abu garcia revo sx with a 6.4 retrieve. I plan to use this for crank baits. It has been suggested to me that because of this I should consider some type of a fiber glass rod. Any thoughts on this?
Which of the above set ups would be better for tubes and plastics on the bottom? For twister tails?
I prefer quality equipment although spending $300+ on a rod causes involuntary spasms. I have spent a lot of time and money trying to find a rod that is highly sensitive for fishing on the bottom. Have tried several St. Croix rods and a G. Loomis GL2 and neither was exceptionally good at allowing me to feel what my jig is doing on the bottom. Hence my trip to the Lamiglas site
What I can use are suggestions for rods for the baiting casting reels mentioned above. Also suggestions for a sensitive rod for jig fishing. This rod will probably be a spinning rod.
Your help/suggestions would be appreciated.
