Call it what you want, and use it for what you want. Rods are a lot more versatile than most people think. And if you want to know what it really is, determine its CCS numbers. And if you want to go another step in knowing what it is, determine its TNF.

One of my son's favorite tube rods is an IP. Inshore popping. My new crankbatit rod, a CB, has an AA of almost 80 degrees. Is that a crankbait rod?

Interesting on your son's choice in a tube rod. Myself and most people I fish with tend to lean towards a nice fast action med power spinning blanks for tubes. Is it a modfast popping blank?

I've been feeling a bit like I want more moderate fast in all my rods now, or maybe it's fast but will still pull down into the mid section... idk. I'd be really curious to try that rod for tubes,.

The rod mentioned is one of my favorite rods for snapping small swimbaits off the bottom, its action giving a nice progressive acceleration of the lure that seems to appeal to walleyes and smallies. Rainshadow IP843 I think? It's probably the equivalent of the REVIP70ML which is offered now. Yes, it surprised me too that he uses it for tubes when he also uses St Croix SCV70MF for tubes but I think it shows that rods are more versatile than most people believe. A little less powerful than the St Crox and its action is slower.

Matt, yes, it's called mod-fast and is called a popping blank. CCS about ERN 13.3, AA 66. I also prefer a faster action for tubes with the PB701MLF and ST Croix SCV70MF's being my favorite tube rods. The IP/ERN of the PB is higher than the SC.

If it works it works right!?? I agree,
the St Croix 66MF and 70MF make excellent tube and general purpose smallie rods.

Mick
Glad ya mentioned the PB701MLF as a tube rod. My son wants a new tube rod with alittle more backbone than the 69MLXF and 70MF croixs he has.. the 661MLF and 701MLF were on the short list

The RX10 Eternity ETEC72M builds into a more than dandy spinning rod for tubes up to say, 1/2 oz Perfect for a 3/16 - 1/4 jig head and a 3 1/2 - 4" tube. :o)

David, I have the RX10 7 foot 2 medium power spin blank built up and yes, it too is a very nice tube rod. And it works very well for lots of other stuff, too.

Looks like 2 more really good options. I'd probably lean towards the etes72m cause we thow alot of
1/8 and 3/16oz. and the occasional day where 1/4oz is needed.
THX!
