For me I like a stout rod in the seven foot range. Something with a fast tip and on the upper end of medium heavy or even a heavy action.

Dead on Mike. I use my David Fritts Perfect cranking rod for the spooks. 7ft medium for mid size spooks and the heavy version for the big lures.

It's a composite rod with a moderate tip. Best $80 rod by far. I have M, MH and H.

Academy sells them and at times we'll under $80 if you scan the internet.

If i catch them on sale I buy them, period. If you are a crankbait guy you will be in for a treat.

Good luck!

Dobyns Champion 734 with braid.  Any of the 734's will work but that rod is the deal for me.  Why do you ask?  Gary steered me to this model.  It flat works.

I throw the big Spook in the Spring, and my CH 735 puts a hurting on them.  ~bb ~bb

I also agree with Mike on that general description. I use a Bass Pro Shops Extreme, an older rod that I've had several years, the Woo Daves series spinnerbait rod.

I'm sure there are other similar and newer, rods, possibly "better", but it's done a fine job for me.

I actually have a couple of that same rod, and use them for different lures.

*It seems there are two camps using braid main line  : 1) Is the 7'+ MH / F action rod users and 2) the 7'+ MH / Mod. rod users . I understand the moderate action rod might keep bass pinned better using braid while the fast action rod should help work the spook a little crisper ?

I think it's the Indian more than the arrow. I use a old All Star Zell Rowland TWS for most of my walking baits and poppers. They bring crazy money these days but if someone is bad with a spook no rod will make up for it. Kinda a personal preference deal.
 On the other hand I think the fish are more triggered by the speed and cadence. I doubt they care how pretty it looks to us standing in the boat watching the retrieve.
