I’ll vouch for my Steez AGS 7’2” mh paired with a Steez A that I’ve dedicated to moving baits with single hooks.
It’s is down right the lightest and most well balanced combo I’ve felt.
It is one my favorite rods.

The XX DSR is good for smaller jigs with small trailers. For something like a Keitech model 3 with a fat impact 4.8, the XX tour versatile or perfect pitch is better.

I've been using the 777 record breaker and the white python lately and both have been great with the chatterbaits and swimjigs.

I love the MB XX DSR for swimjigs. I will also occasionally use my MB XX Spinnerbait Special in tighter quarters casting scenarios. Both are excellent to me.

Megabass Orochi F5-70DG Advantage Type River Slant Bridge is a very nice swimjig rod. Nice combination of power and taper. I am thinking of picking up a Steez STZ721MHRB-AGS to try. I like the stiff jdm regular taper more than an US fast taper for swimjigs.
