Which Blank for Jerk Bait

Which one of these 3 blanks would be a good jerk bait rod throwing weightless plastics, floating worms and swimming plastic up to a 1/4oz jig head. Will be fishing 8lb fluoro.


Rainshadow RX6 SB-782 8-14lb, 1/4-5/8 oz. fast/med
Rainshadow RX6 SB-822.5 6-14lb, 1/8-5/8oz. x-fast/med
Rainshadow RX7 ISB-822.5 6-14lb, 1/8-5/8oz x-fast/med

Out of the ones you’re looking at the RX6 SB-782 would be a great choice.

We’d also recommend the Revelation REVS68M or 72M – if you want to step it up a notch or two. [www.rainshadowrodblanks.com]

Follow batsons recommendation, step up you won’t be sorry one bit!! The blanks you have listed worked pretty darn well for shakey heads and some liked them as heavier drop shot rod. If you would really like to kick it up look in the immortal lineup!!

Thanks James & Thomas. I have a RX7 882.5 built for dropshot. I also
have the REVS68M but haven't built on it yet. i am saving that one for myself. I picked the blanks in question on close out to build for my oldest grandson. Again thanks for the reply.
