Recommend new rod for Senkos

11 posts in this topic

Broke my old Lew's Carbon Fire rod. Use it with spinner... primarily Senkos...open water but also in weeds and cover.  Needs to be under $100. Prefer durability over high sensitivity.

Thanks

There are a ton of options for this use. Stick with a 6'6 medium action rod, fast action. Personally I'd buy the Clarus; I've fished one for years and have been quite happy with it. Personally I don't fish Ugly Stiks anymore, and don't like fiberglass in a rod unless I'm tuna or shark fishing. The Elite Uglys are a heck lot better, lighter, and feel more like a graphite rod than a super heavy poorly balanced wet noodle, like the GX2 Uglys.

 

Better Quality/Most Sensitive: Shimano Clarus $80

Most Durable/Least Sensitive: Ugly Stik Elite $50

Sensitive/Strong: Fenwick HMX rods: $80

Lew’s Carbon Fire 6’10”, Dick’s has them for $50.  I love mine for Senkos and light swimbaits.

I went back to Dick's and was impressed that the manager said he would let me exchange for a new Carbon Fire rod. Should be arriving next week.

I love my Dobyns Fury series rod, price under $100. With lifetime warranty too. 

Can’t go wrong 

I've heard those are a very good value.  Probably my next rod.
