Default Re: Looking for Bass Rod

I generally use 7-8 weight fiberglass as bass rods. There's nothing like a 7 lb bass on fiberglass. In addition, the softer action actually helps the fish to remain hooked.

If I do feel the need for more heft I'll take out an Albright XX Series by Lou Tabory. It'll cast anything you'll wish to throw and you can yank the fish out of the pads if you need to. They're also currently 80% of their "list price".

I see a lot of 7 weight love on this thread. To me, I can't fathom a situation where I'd want a 7 weight where an 8 weight wouldn't do the same job, but better. Especially if we're talking about bass.
