    Hey, I'm looking to spend money on a bass/walleye rod. so that'll either mean a ML or M rod. I'm thinking of 6'6 feet long. I really need a super sensitive rod for 3-4 inch tubes, jigging, along with casting crankbaits. I do not need a MH or H rod as I hardly fish near large structure. I tend to mainly throw at smallmouths on Lake Michigan which average 3 1/2 lbs (they're huge)

    What are some recommendations? i can spend up to 100 bucks for one.. I'm looking at the St Croix Premier, Fenwick HMG, Browning Citori or a BPS rod.. please give me your output

    I have a Berkley "Lightning" rod and I love it. It's really light weight and super sensitive. Affordable as well. :cool2:

    Try checking out G-Loomis GL2 rods. They might be a hair over what you are looking to spend but I promise you will love them. They are ultra sensative and have a life time warranty. Since I bought one I haven't bought a different rod since. They have some high dollar rods but you have a hard time finding a better rod for the price.
