Rapala R-Type 7'2" MHF 2 piece Casting Rod

Post by rubs96 » Wed Mar 26, 2014 1:25 pm

Picked this up a couple of weeks ago and lent it to my buddy for a trip down south. Worked well for him fishing plastics for largemouth.

I loved the review about it (http://tackletour.com/reviewrapalartype.html) and decided to take the plunge when I saw it (at a steal of a price as well).

Anybody have this rod? What have you used it for?

If the weather cooperates, I'll be taking it our Friday evening to hopefully catch some pike. (went out last Sunday but only hooked one walleye on the fly).

While I don't have that specific rod I do have the 6'7" R-Type MH Spinning and I must say it is probably my favorite rod. I use it mostly for bass (I did use it last year around opener for pike and will use it at opener again this year) and I find it has plenty of power to handle the bass, and the one (maybe two) pike I hooked. It's decently light and fairly sensitive and could comfortably fish unweighted baby brush hogs to Rapala Subwalk 09's and HJ14's
