Hey guys, I just ordered a new Irod it's the stone cold swim jig/bladed jig rod 3/8-1oz to replace an old rod. I got this rod to be my primary swim jig/4.5inch hollow body swim bait rod. Iv always threw these baits on an medium heavy/fast tip rod. When I ordered rod I saw it was a medium heavy swim jig rod so thought I'd give it a try. It has not came in yet but after looking closer to
Other forums it is a medium heavy/ moderate fast tip. Always heard you wanted a fast tip for single hook baits. Just wondering if anyone has used one of these rods or what your thought on it is. I fishing Toledo/ Rayburn so not just super thick grass but mild. Usually throw 3/8-1/2oz swim jig. To sum this up just wondering if you think I can get a solid hook set on in grass wth a moderate fast tip? Thanks

I prefer a mod fast tip.I think you will find it loads up better on the cast. And is more forgiving on the hook set and when fighting a will depend on how heavy the swim jig set up your using is, as to whether it over powers the tip or bet is if you give it a fair try, you may like it better...let us know.
The driving force and secret desire of every bass fisherman, is to one day be a crappie fisherman............Could it be that the good Lord just smilies and looks the other way when a fisherman tells a lie?
