Megabass P5 Windbuster vs. Bait Finesse

Post by mbleming » Mon Sep 26, 2022 11:59 am

Hi, I'm looking at both the Windbuster and Bait FInesse rods for casting free rig/light texas rig 3-3.5" soft plastics with 1/8 weights. I've heard a ton of amazing things about the Windbuster for this technique, but I'm not a huge fan of spinning gear, so I am interested in the Bait Finesse as they spec out pretty similarly. Does anyone have experience with both rods with light soft plastic use? I know the WB is a highly recommended rod due to its sensitivity, can I expect a similar level with the Bait Finesse? I'm certainly not against picking up a spinning rod if it really is special in this regard, but I know I'll enjoy fishing more with a baitcaster...any thoughts on comparisons between these rods?

Thanks!!

Thanks, I read the review and it was definitely helpful and has me leaning that way. I was just hoping someone might've had hands on experience with both rods...the P5s are all so nice, probably can't go wrong with either choice.
