For the Bass plugging and spinning the rod used is an old Greys Grxispin....and she's fine for what I do with her. However I can see it's not going to "work" with the Pike lures, the crankbaits/slashbaits etc, the different working style' needed. A stiffer and shorter rod methinks, for the different style......but what?

Any recommendations out there, for "what" I should be looking at? Sumhut' shorter/stiffer that can handle the larger lures in the proper style......Looks like the "baitcaster" style is de-rigur'

Now the Daiwa Powermesh X Jerkbait would seem to fit the bill, at 6'6".....but it's one piece...and sounds like a transportation issue, maybe.

Hi Nick,

no budget really....as long as it's sensible' and not up there with the Van Stall' class of reels strata. It's a style I have never done before, bit of a grey area then. Been using the wrong approach entirely up to now for previous efforts.....and must have been very unlucky also.....a second eyeball' at the chariot reveals that a 6'6" one piece will fit.....and whilst I'm about it.....if we are talking the rod.....there will have to be a reel.....anyone using the ABU 5601 (left hand)?

Grateful for any thoughts from folks familiar with this style....

I think you are referring to a Jerk style rod.

Bushwhacker
Some of the Sakura Rookie range.
Rod Bar 210 or 240

These rods will rip a lure down quickly to depth without the tip collapsing.
Pretty much in order of power, stiffness and price.

However, they are all good.

Many thanks for the suggestions and pointers.....I'm sorted now for both Jerkbait rod and reel....now then, if I can just ignore the Bass for a bit....Crocs' beware.
