Hi guys,

I'm already thinking about the ice melting in a couple of months or so and going out for some crappie and perch. I want to buy a couple med-light spinning rods that will be good for my 6-lb. braid they're gonna' be spooled with. Anybody have any suggestions as to Brand and model? I would like them to be 7' and higher (2-piece), buy nothing crazy like noodle rods.

Thanks in advance!

Fenwick has the best price/quality ratio overall in my opinion. I have 60-70% Fenwicks...no matter what type of fishing...

They are very light and sensitive, too.

I've got a St Croix Eyecon 7'6 Medium Light 2 piece, used for snap jigging, very sensitive, but strong blank.

I also have a St Croix Eyecon 6'3 Medium extra fast, 1 piece, used for walleye jigging, some perching as well. Like the length of this rod for quick hooksets.

Both rods have a half cork half EVA foam handle, feels great in the hand as well.

Little higher in the price range then the Fenwicks but worth a look when shopping.

Cheers

Another vote for Fenwicks - as another poster suggested, I think you get the best performance for value with them.

St Croix hands down!
I can agree with advertised as "Best rods on earth" AND one of the very, very few still made in America.
Higher end $ than Fenwick if it fits your pocket book.


2nd choice...........Fenwick.

I own a one piece st croix and a 2 piece Fenwick. The st croix has way better sensitivity and is lighter but the Fenwick feels a little more stiff when it comes to possibly handling bigger fish
