Bass rod multi purpose

Looking for a Rod geeks blank that will work for most bass fishing set ups.
I know I will have to sacrifice some things to get what I want but I only bass fish 2 or 3 times a year. Any recommendations?

Rod Geeks huh , i have a few and they're fantastic , especially for the price . Will you be fishing off a boat or from the shoreline because that question alone will let us know what length of blank will be most suitable . What do you throw the most along with the reel and line choices you plan on using is the one question that will allow people to recommend the best possible match for what you're looking to do.

Thanks guys


Herb I mostly use soft plastic swim baits and spinner baits. Line is around 12lbs and not sure what reel but it will be a baitcast from a boat.
