    Troll techs are super stiff, so you've got cranks and power trolling covered with them. My favorite for true spider rigging is Capps and colemans or on the cheap(er) BGJPs. That said if your stuck on heavy back bones PSTs are still heavy but lighter action than the troll techs. I'm sure someone will be along to tell you about other brands shortly.

    A lot like the old Wannabe... except with fewer bad words. And Karate chop action. But, yes, still purtier than you.

    I have a set of Capps and Coleman 14 fters and I love them for light slow trolling I have been using them with a 3/8 oz double minnow rig and they do great! Then I have a set of southerns 143T for the heavier stuff. And most recently purchased a set of ozarks and they seem to be somewhere in between the c&c and the southerns. I really like them all.

    I have owned PST , Ozarks, and southern . I do not fish cold weather much so PST;s would be fine . Won 8 Ozarks and they were great .I only have the southerns now and they serve the purpose . All around good rod. There are so many Rods that a trip to grizzle jig co . might be in your best interest . I have never used any but would like to try the store brand, dead ringers . What ever you do put on a minnow and stay ready . A 100.00 rod may boat a few more fish in a days time " but '' Staying on fish ability comes with no rod . I can remember when cane poles were king on Enid 25 yrs. ago . Then everyone went to 7.00 rods . them show offs !

    Crappie maxx are much stiffer than the BGJP.

    As someone said , A trip to Grizzly and you could feel several. Very cool place.

    I like the PST's and the Capps & Colemans. This is kinda like a Ginger or Mary Ann question, lol. BTW, it was Mary Ann for me all day long.

    PST'S are great and do very good with detecting light bites.
    But, the BGJP'S are awesome for lights and finicky fish. They don't load up as quick so the fish don't feel that resistance until it's too late and you've crossed their eyes!!
    In my opinion, the best spider rigging rods would be a PST with either a BGJP or Capps and Coleman tip. Have the backbone to lift 2lb fish, and the tip sensitivity for the light bite. This set up will be my next option in rods.
