PB701MLF for Spinning

Wanting a spinning rod that is a little versatile. I will be using 10lb braid with fluro leader, Tatula 2500 series reel and alternating between Rico popr, wacky rig and neko rig with 1/16 to 1/8 oz weight. Is this rod a good choice for that, or is the PB701MF a better choice. The latter looks to be on the heavy side as far as lure weights. Thanks as always guys.

PB701MLF and PB701MF are top sellers for us based largly on vesatility. They do A LOT of things very well. Based on lure weight, I think your choice is perfect.

Keith, good choice. I have the 731MF and it's quickly become my favorite rod for a many techniques. The MLF fits your lure weight choice well, but for your next Point Blank. . . MF
