What is a good lamiglas rod for largemouth bass lake fishing that combines crankbaits and plastic jigs?
Generally rods used for crankbaits and jigs are quite different. Crankin' rods are slower or softer in their actions because they are fitted with treble hooks. The Excel XL705G or the XCC725 are prime examples of great crankbait rods. Jig rods or Jig and Texas Plastics rods are generally much stiffer and have faster actions to drive the hook home and to move fish out of the heavy cover those types of baits shine in. Now there is some middle ground but you will have to compromise. The current Excel XL734C might work for both applications. That model has some flex well into the blank so it will load easy when casting, provide some foregiveness if a fish surges yet has the length and butt power to fish smaller jigs and plastics in most cover conditions and achieve that hook set and power the fish out of that cover. Again it is a rod that can meet you half way for both applications and they are light and sensitive at a great price. If you want a true jig rod any of the graphite, Certified Pro, Excel or XMG 705 power rods will work very well. Look for the XL764C when it comes out later this year. It looks to be an awsome rod.
Hope this helps.
For the price and quality and a rod that will fit your needs I would go with the XL 704 C it should cover everything You will want out of the rod just fine. I hope this helps have a great day.
