Spinning Rod
« on: July 02, 2018, 02:02:41 PM »

Hello

I've been looking for a rod to match up with my bass pro shop quick draw spinning reel that I bought because of how cheap it was and because it had good reviews. I'm only 16 and on a very limited budget of 40-60$. What I was thinking of using the rod for was mainly texas rigged senkos and possibly other plastics. The only other rod I have is the Pro Qualifier 2 MH Combo that I bought at bass pro shop so I was thinking of matching that up with a spinning setup for plastics. I did teach my self how to fish and I want to learn more so please give me some advice.

Try a Berkley lightning rod- a shock rod with bronze color on rod. Usually found at any Wal-Mart for $40. And good luck!

cwaite_80, WELCOME TO ULTIMATEBASS!!!!!!!!  ~c~

i WILL HAVE TO AGREE WITH WHAT FFF RECOMENDED....MY VERY FIRST gRAPHIT rOD BOUGHTEN WHEN I WAS LIKE 16 WAS A LIGHTEN ROD.

It lasted for 20+ years and HUNDREDS of fish.

I recomend you get a Med. Powered Fast Action 7 footer.
It will toss even weightless stickbaits (Senko style baits) all the way up to 1/4 oz. jigs.
Good for Flukes,TX rigged worms weighted, spinning baits (inline as well as hairpin) amongst a LOT of other baits.

GREAT MULTIPURPOSE ROD!  ~c~

Feel free to ask ANY and ALL questions you have or come up with!!!!!!!!
We are ALL here to help!!

AGAIN....WELCOME TO THE CLUB!!!!!!

Welcome to the Ultimate Bass family cwaite! Pleasure to have you with us. Pull up a chair, make yourself right at home and jump in wherever you feel comfortable. 

I agree the Lightening Rod Shock is a good rod for the money. Many Walmarts have them on sale for $20 - $30. If you can save up for just a short while more I would recommend a Colt series rod from Dobyns. It's a definite step up from the Lightening Rod and it's only $79.99.

Have to add me to the Lightning Shock recommendations.  Google  "2018 Lightning rod".  If the Shock is too much, look at a Berkley Cherrywood.

If you have an Academy around and can stomach having a fiberglass rod, the h2o express Angler is a good rod for less than $15.  I have a few of the 7ft model and they have held up to saltwater fishing for a number of years.  I have caught everything from 2 or 3 inch baitfish to 20lb black drum with them and they have done well.

I used to visit the store here in Baytown every couple of weeks and have run across many great un-advertised deals on higher end gear, but you have to be there to get them, if ya know what I mean.

This is a good time to hit the store too because of the holiday and all.

I am going to agree with the folks that mentioned the Lightning.
I like the lightning and the lightning shock. Both are inexpensive. For the money they are great.

I had one of the first lightning rods and it lasted well over 20 years and was sensitive till the end.
An excellent beginners rod.

My Lightning is over 42 years old (Already had it when I got married that long ago.)..........but I did quit fishing for 23 years after moving to this area.  That rod has caught more fish than all the rods I've purchased since getting back into fishing in '09.  Fishing was good where i used to live.  Sucks here which is why I quit for so long.
