Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

I am looking into either buying or building a 9 ft. one piece spinning rod. The main purpose is to use the rod to fish lures in the 1/2oz to 2oz range. I have a st.croix tide master 8ft med heavy rod and a ben doerr 8ft-6 med. rod . I like the ben doerr better than the tide master.I think what I am looking for is a fast action rod that will throw these size lures out with less effort than the rods I have now. give me some suggestions. clapping.gif

Depending on how much you want to spend, I'd suggest either the Lami XRA 1083 or the Batson Rainshadow SW 1087. The XRA is better at the low end, the Batson has a little more balls for the 2 oz stuff (and can probably be pushed higher).

 

The Batson also costs about half of what the XRA runs for.
