Re: Can anyone compare 7MH. St.Croix LE and 7'2"MH Shimano Expride

Re: Power finesse rod

It may be a little short at 7'1" but I think it fits your needs. G.Loomis IMX Pro 852C JWR, it is an extra fast action and works great for shaky heads and smaller finesse jigs and Neko rigs, it might be worth your time to check one out. I was actually looking at the IMX Pro 892C JWR. It seems ...
