Looking for suggestions. Probably throwing swim baits in the 5" range. I haven't fished them much and was wanting to get a decent setup. Thanks for the help. Jim

How heavy? For over 1.5 oz I switch to musky gear, lot more options.

Powell Makes a 7'6" MAG Heavy (inferno) that's pretty substantial but still has a really good tip

I've got a Dixie customs glide bait series rod and an ardent Apex Magnum id sell cheap if you're interested. Ive used it one time, it just didn't feel strong enough for some of the really big swimbaits I throw. It's perfect for anything under 3oz.

Dobyns Fury 795 or 806SB is tough to beat for just over 100.00. The 795 is rated for 1-5 ounces and the 806 is rated for 2-8 ounces.

You just need a 7’-7’6” MH fast rod for that size.
