Advice wanted -> Matagi TR78 Super Nimble Minnow VS TR76 Super Shore L

Hello everyone,

Since this is one if not the biggest forum with a ton of knowledge I'd like to have some advice regarding these two blanks.

First I will narrow down what I seek in a rod and what I will use it for and secondly the blanks I've found.


Target Fish = European Perch, but Zander or Pike can be caught too.

Rod specification = Super sensitivity (I love to feel every little bite) as well as a really nice parabolic bend. I love to feel the fight.

Fishing area = Mostly river lakes with little to no current from the shore with or without wading suit.



My first target rod to buy was the Yamaga bluecurrent 83 TZ/NANO, but that one is hard to get these days. I thought then to let a custom rod build, a little bit more expensive but in the end quality is better as it's handmade.

So it comes down, after some research, to Matagi TR78 Super Nimble Minnow, but one rod builder said that Matagi TR76 Super Shore L might be a better choice, more progressive but less parabolic bending? Since it's impossible to feel both rods here in Holland I'd have to go by reviews and thoughts of others.

Is there anyone who can advice me about these blanks or perhaps there's a better blank out there?



Thanks

Ferio.

If it is a spinning rod go for the one with the smaller butt, Super Nimble Minnow. For a baitcaster do the Super Shore L.

I build the TR76 Super Shore L for nearly same program.
For me better choice than Super Mimble Minnow.

More power.
Better for plastic if you use them.
But choice is your.
