Weightless worm rod.
« on: November 14, 2020, 05:57:40 AM »

Curious what rod you all throw weightless trick worms and flukes on ? I'd rather have a casting rod, maybe 703 ?

I throw those on a 734. If I had a 704 that would work too. I'm not fan of casting rods below 4 powers, but then again, look where I live.  :)

Been using a Sierra 703C for trick worms this summer.  Very satisfied with the casting and with the rods ability to keep the fish pinned.  So far so good.  Althoughj I am thinking I would also like a 704 to complete my on deck arsenal.

I throw them on a Fury 733 C and a Sierra 734 C. Both with 30 lb. braid. Cast a country mile either way and handle the fish with no problems.

Sierra 734c is what I use to skip them under brush and docks.
The 703 would be my second choice.

I throw mine on a 742c. You guys are making me feel underpowered! Hahah, but seriously the 742c is the best weightless plastic rod I've ever used.

I don't use a baitcaster very often for weightless flukes, but I have a DX 743 I use.

My rod of choice for weightless flukes is a DC 704 SF which is perfect to me.  I prefer spinning rigs for all my weightless stuff...

I agree.I fished Falcon for many years. The WWR makes a great jerkbait rod also. I'm in the mood to try some different stuff however.

Long story that should help here. We had a guy that is a trick worm nutcase. He catches lots of big ones and it's his favorite technique. He came to the shop and we pulled every 2 and 3 power casting rod we make to see which one would cast the furthest. after 15 or so rods the Champ 733C was the winner. It was neck and neck with Sierra 733C but he wanted the Champ. So I can honestly say the Sierra or Champ 733C will win in a casting contest with a trick worm.
