What’s your Finesse spinning rod?

Postby tracker01 » Sat Dec 23, 2017 6:26 am

Looking to throw TRD’s, small tubes, small worms, basically small bottom contact baits.
Thank you

It is this highest dollar rod I own, and maybe worth it.

a 6'9 ML rod that is out of production. ML rods have the specs I want for light spinning. I go to a Light powered rod only when fishing a crappie jig

Hedgehog Evoluzion paired with a Certate 1003, braid and fluoro leader. I bought this rig specifically for Ned rigs and dropshot. The stinger tip is a pleasure to fish with.

How is that LT so far? I really wish they had offered the Ballistic LT1000 in a 6 speed ratio. Looks good, just a shortage of reviews for now.

I went and checked. appears mine a Fenwich ET Smallmouth 6'9 ML- F as well. Has lower weight limit of 1/6th oz and weights in at about 3.4oz on my scale. I sold off a far more expensive rod when I happened along this rod. Could well be that one of the 2 prior gentleman put me onto this rod. Certainly someone did because it is the only Fenwich rod I've ever held. I recollect thinking a 1/16oz lower lure rating was what I wanted in a finesse spinning bass rod; though I have no idea how I arrived at that.
