hey

i recently purchased the bass pro shops extreme baitcasting combo. it came w/ a Woo Waves extreme baitcasting rod. i choosed the 6'6'' M action 8-17lb test line. it didnt specify what the rod was designed for. i wanted to use this rod for soft plastics and other lure choices. but when it arrived in the mail today i realized that is was a Woo Daves SPINNERBAIT rod. would it be ok if i used this rod for lures such as spooning, senkos, and other soft plastics??? or would the action be all wierd? or would if be hard to feel the fish or lure? what do u think i should do with my situation?


thank you for your help

if you are going to keep the rod,i would only use it for spinnerbaits,crankbaits ,and also senkos.the rod should have a fast tip,meaning that it would not be as stout as a med./heavy rod.I would not use it for jigs,texas rig worms,or spooning.

Delw fishes little 4" tx-rigged lizards. Sissy Baits. So of course he can use a med power rod. Delw also loses more fish at the boat than anyone I've ever known. :lol: :lol:

That M should work great for lighter soft plastics - senkos, light weighted T-Rigs, d.s., spinners, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, jerkbaits, buzzbaits, Rico's. Like DelW, I prefer MH for most applications but a M should work just fine for most presentations. Those are pretty good reels, too. For the money, they may be the best out there. You'll love it.

I have that exact same rod and it is a pretty stiff med power with a fast action. I have used it for everything from light plastics to 3/4 oz SPOOK. I had trouble throwing real light cranks and topwaters with it, but that is probably just me. One thing I would recommend is to match line weight to the weight of the lures you're going to throw until you get really good with the baitcaster. FWIW, I have the same rod in 6'6" MH and that one is reall stiff. I love it for pitching and throwing larger spinners.

I wouldnt use anything but spinnerbaits with it, b/c it says SPINNERBAIT right on the rod...the fish are going to say "Holy cow! That guy is fishing a worm on a SPINNERBAIT rod...and he thinks we are going to eat that? Get outta town!"
Seriously.....if it has a fast tip it should be great for those pressure bites you get when the fish just mouth the worm and dont swim off. 8)

my friend has the same rod but in MH. and it was real nice. but i got the M, just because i wanted to use a 1/8 oz. spoon at the smallest with it and maybe 8lb at the least and some other lighter oz stuff. and the MH doesnt recomend anything smaller then 1/4 oz for that rod, so i got the M. i also got it because the MH also recommends 10 lb line at the least. the rod came yesterday (wed.) and the reel comes tomarrow (fri), i cant wait to mate them up and try it out! right after school i might have to go to the local pond and try it out! i cant wait


see ya on the water
