Well you have came to the right place!

What type of fishing? Bass, walleye, pike, musky, perch, catfish, crappie/bluegill?

Let me know and I will point you in the right direction.

I recomend Bass Pro shops they have a large sellection to choose from.

For a tube rod I highly recomend the TAS 845STR Tube Rod. This is a 7ft 1 piece spinning rod with a medium fast action.

For cranking I recomemend the TS844CB it is a 7ft 1 piece casting rod with a moderate action. If you throw alot of big crank baits you may wish for a beefier rod than this one. I throw alot of smaller crank baits and I really like this rod for that.

For heavy crankbaits and spinnerbaits I would recommend the TAS 806C. This is a 6'8" 1 piece casting rod with a Med-Heavy fast action tip.

..........................

The Tub rod I mentioned above is also great for throwing soft plastics into heavy cover and trash. It is one of my favorite rods.

The last rod I mentioned also works well for flipping larger baits like a jig and pig.

Hope this helps.....

Anthony you nailed it.

If you cant find the rods at Bass Pro, let me know. I know of a few other places to get them.

Yes I am a local Rep for All Star (among other things
