Shimano Clarus 6'6" medium med/fast
« on: February 08, 2015, 01:23:14 AM »

I fished a sahara 3000fe on a Shimano convergence worm and jig last year as my spinning setup and did not find it very balanced or comfortable. So while looking for some tackle, the shop had shimano rods on clearance and I found a IM7 Clarus 6'6" medium med/fast for less than $20 so I grabbed it up. Now,I'm looking for some info on the rod and my searches turn up the newer IM8 rods. I've mounted the reel and the setup seems a lot more balanced but it's a lot lighter. So I looking for some advice on the performance of this rod. I like to throw weightless plastics and small treblehook baits with my spinning gear and just wondering if this rod is going to hold up.

I've been lurking on the sites for months and would like to say thanks for all the info.

I own this rod and it works great for small cranks, as for weightless worm it probably could but since it's made for cranking and the action is pretty soft.  I think you may get away with it using braid.
