rod reccomendation

Postby illinoisbassfishin » Sun Feb 08, 2015 2:44 pm

What spinning rod would you recommend for fishing drop shots with up to 1/4-3/8 oz weights, shakey heads up to 3/16 oz weights and wacky jigging with 1/8 oz weight. I will be using7 or 8 lb sunline flourocarbon on it. I am looking for a rod that will work for all applications in the omen black line. I was looking at the 7'1" medium light and medium rods. Any help would be appreciated because I have never owned a 13 fishing rod.

I would recommend that you take a look at the OBS71M if you plan on staying in the upper weight ranges listed....you might love the extra feel that you will get if you drop down to the OBS610ML...

but, if you are looking for the ultimate rod, and can spend a little more money, the best rod in the current line up will be the new Envy Black 6'10" and 7'2" ML Finesse Rods.(Launching in March)

What is the difference between the omen 7'1 ml compared to the 6'10 ml other than the length and the lure weight?

Overall the 7'1" has slightly more power in the lower 3/4 of the rod. The tip section on these two models is virtually identical.

Well I'm all about saving money and fishing on a budget and having the best that I can afford. Gander Mtn, had a sale going on 10% off everything in the store and they have the omen black line. All they had in stock was the 7'1" medium light so I got it. I haven't used it yet but paired up with my quantum exo 30 spinning reel it feels great. Now I have two 7'6" medium heavy omen black casting rods, a 6'10" medium omen black casting rod and 4 concept a reels. What little bit I've used them I love them. I hope they hold up for many hours of fishing.
