    Default Need a new spinning rod. Help!

    Hi all. I have been gone from the board awhile. I will be back.
    I am here today looking for help with new ultralight spinning rod. I want something fast action is that will toss anything from a beetle spin to a 3/16th jig head or small lures. I have been using and abusing a BnM Duck commander rod for years in the salt. Yes, I do use it on crappie and panfish, but in the Glades it can be panfish one minute and snook the next in the canals. Two days ago I tossed a z man minnow on a 1/8th ounce jig head off the boat ramp and landed a four foot tarpon. It took awhile, but with ten pound braid and a 2500 shimano Sedona it worked! Not what it was designed for, or my intended use, but its nice to know you are prepared.

    Anyway the salt has finally ratted it out and I need a new rod. So, rather than just go buy a new one I thought I would ask for help. My parameters are that it has to handle the above mentioned weight, or at least go as high as 1/8th ounce, be at least six feet and be under a hundred bucks. I just dropped $150 on an inshore rod and need to stay in the budget range, or a t least try.

    Thanks!

    Take a look at Dobyns. Colt Panfish rod might work for you. About $80

    The TCB is a really nice rod for pans and crappie, it’s the other bruisers that you might come across that would give me pause. Maybe check out the micro lite suggested above. You have a nice problem but you probably need two rods.
