How do I choose a bass rod?
To select a rod “power”, choose a rod designed to cast the lure weight and fishing line you use most often. As an example fishing bass in weeds and cover will require a stronger power rod using a heavier fishing line where on open water a lighter line and lower rod power rating will surfice for crappies.

Are Dobyns Rods good?
They are quality rods at that price point. Good sensitivity, and very stout from what I have experienced.
How many rods do you need to bass fish?
Many serious bass anglers will have at least 3 rods on standby to fish most scenarios that could arise. They have a medium action bait caster to pitch plastics deep near cover. This rod is usually a fast action model spooled with heavy braid to haul bass out of cover fast to prevent break-offs.
Is medium/heavy good for bass?
For larger black bass, walleye, catfish, and others, a medium power with moderate-fast or fast action rod works well. Largemouth bass, striped bass, and other large predators will need a medium heavy or heavy power rod with fast action coupled with swimbaits like the Castaic Jerky J or Reaction Strike Fathead Jr.
What is a 6’6 MH rod good for?
The KVD Tour 6-6 or 6-10 medium heavy action makes that easier, especially when fishing spinnerbaits or swim jigs. It has a softer tip that loads the rod best for the low trajectory/soft splash entry you need.
How do you pick a rod action?
A fast action rod will bend in the top third or less of the blank, a medium or moderate action rod will bend in the top half or so, and a slow action rod will bend starting in the lower third of the rod and into the handle. Action, simply put, is where a rod bends.
What is medium/heavy rod?
7-foot, medium-heavy casting rod A medium-heavy rod will allow you to fish Texas rigs, smaller jigs, spinnerbaits, vibrating jigs, topwater lures, crankbaits and much more without sacrificing hardly any performance.
Do pro bass fishermen use spinning reels?
Even the biggest professional bass fishermen will use a spinning reel when they need to toss a small crankbait, a beetle spin or a light jerkbait. They just can’t get the distance that they need with a baitcasting reel when they are using light or small lures like that.
What do professional bass fishermen use?
Most professional anglers today use very little monofilament line. About the only time I’ll choose monofilament to fish for bass is if I’m fishing a spinner bait or a bladed jig or cranking very heavy wood with a square-billed crankbait and making short casts.
What is a 6 10 medium rod good for?
The Impulse Original 6’10″ Medium is the perfect rod for fishing a drop shot or skipping docks with a wacky worm. For a small rod it has plenty of backbone for great hooksets.
