Daiwa Zillion rods. Their rod actions are built the way I like them.

Dobyns Fury Series rods - great quality and feel at a great price.

Dobyns Champion XP and Champion Extreme - extremely high quality, sensitivity and feel.

Duckett Micro Magic Pro - lightweight for the price (I use mine as a flipping' stick), strong, feels great.

All of them are for cranking, dragging, jigs, weightless, top water, really everything.

Megabass- mostly the Orochi XX lineup with a few U.S. Destroyer models mixed in. Got a Levante or two in the mix as well but all are Megabass.

I use Dobyns rods for my setups. Because they are LIGHT and SENSITIVE!!!!!!!!!!!1 BEST CRANKING rods in the business I have found. I like the Champion and the Fury rods, but primarily the Champion. Champion extreme in some cases, like drop shot or jigs/T-rigs. Hard to beat teh whole lineup for Dobyns. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I have split between Loomis (mostly GLX or GL2) and Kistler (Helium and KLX). I use the GLX and Helix for bottom contact baits and the GL2 and KLX for moving baits.

A few weeks ago I asked if anyone had tried Alpha Anglr Rods but didnt get any responses. I went ahead and bought a used Alpha DSR (Drop Shot Rod) just to give them a try (didnt want to do a $300 test). I have to say, it is the best Drop Shot Rod I have ever held, I am actually going to sale my old drop shot rod (GL2) when I get around to it because I like this one so much. I obviously havent tried their other rods but I will probably use the funds from the sale to buy a different model as well (hopefully I can find another used one). I cant seem to find one negative review about them and at this point I dont have anything negative to say either.

I have the $100 TFOs that I love and Falcon Bucos(sp?) that are good too. I have fished with just about all of them but rods at this $100 or so price point seem to be plenty light, and plenty sensitive for what I do. I don't cry too hard when I break one since they are not too pricey.

Custom built from leviathan rods, best rods I have ever owned and have yet to have a single issue with one. Not so much as loosing a eye insert. Slowly working on having only their rods in my boat.

Mine run the gamut.

Academy H2O Ethos rods for punching, flipping, Carolina rig, and heavy crankbaiting.
Megabass for jigs and light flipping
Diawa Steez rods for frog, t rig, and smaller crankbaits
Diawa Zillion for heavy flipping and another for big swim baits
Diawa Tatula for bladed jigs
Cashion for top waters
Falcon Cara ST for weightless worm and an all purpose Amistad
Diawa Tatula for light spinning (drop shot)
Shimano Expride for shaky head


I'm sure I'm forgetting a few....

For the Texas rig, it's hard to beat the Megabass Orochi Extreme Mission. I have that paired with a Shimano Metanium XG, and I have been nailing them on the Texas rig with it. Probably my favorite setup of the moment.
