Looking for a rod suggestion

Rate this topic

24 posts in this topic

Looking for a rod to pair w a vs 200. Breachway, canal, and big surf rod. Probably use it for eels also, but needs to be able to fish sp's, loaded redfins, etc.. Had the legend recommended and I do like them bt not sure I want to sink that much. Thinking more 250-300$ range, and no mojos. Suggestions? I'm upgrading from my airwave, which I'm sick of getting tip fixed.

If you want to toss sp and redfins, id go 1201l. I feel the m is a bit too heavy for any minnow lure. I wouldnt plan on tossing much more than 3oz with it though...the L that is

I picked up a century stealth 2-5 11' to put my VS 250 on. I've been using it since march and I'm really happy with it. Its a little more pricy than your budget, but once you feel the weight with the VS on it you might decide to drop the extra 140! Its a very light but powerful setup.

Have u considered buying a legend used on BST?

I have but I like having an active warranty and don't like relying on how someone else maintained their gear.

is there a rod that can fish the canal well and still throw sp's well?

 

that's a huge range...

Partly why I am asking figured people on here fish these conditions and might have ideas. It is a large range.

I have a century 1-4 and love it bt was hoping for a cheaper option.

there are plenty of folks here that have forgotten more than I know, but that said, I don't think the rod youre looking for exists...

 

keep the century for the light stuff and grab a heavier rod for the canal and b-ways...

 

I know you said no mojo, but my mojo is a great canal rod (MSS110MHMF2)

 

you want to kidnap it for a test- trip out there, you are more than welcome.

Look at the Fiberstar lineup on his website too. I own the Predator SB1266 3/4-4 and will do all that, but I would also look at the SB1267, and then the 11' Marauder MB-1327.

 

I was fiddling with the 1327 in a shop, and it's really nice.

 

Of course these are in the mid $300's.

What local shop will have most of these to hold? Quaker lane is my local but there in store stock does not have most of these. Thanks again for all the suggestions.
