I used to throw flukes on a Berkley lightning shock rod 6'6" M. Looking at Falcon rods, specifically the 6'7" MH weightless worm rod or should I just stick with a 6'6" M rod like the cranker? If you have any other suggestions I'm all ears. Don't want a rod over 6'8" due to fishing from a kayak. Thanks in advance

I’d go with the MH weightless worm rod
Grass and weightless fluke go together like PB&J. You want something stouter and less flexible than a medium cranker to get the bass out of the grass

The Flacon weightless worm and finesse jig both really good fluke / senko rods. thumb

I find myself using a dobyns 766 for a senko or fluke aroundgrass. I know it's overkill

Anything 7 ft. MH will work. I use 7'3" just for stronger hook ups since flukes are thicker baits.

Me too. The weightless worm is to flimsy for me but it makes a great top water rod or drop shot rod. The 7'mh is a great all around rod.

The guy I fish with uses nothing but 7'3" or 7'6" heavy throwing flukes or senkos and won't use anything else. It works too. He doesn't miss fish or limit casting distance or anything. I can't do it though. I think the difference is line size. He uses 17 and I use 20. With the 20 I just don't think the bait sinks right or works right

I do have an older Cara finesse jig rod, I'm just worried fishing out of a kayak about slapping the water with the tip of the rod.

The 5-167 Weightless Worm is perfect for wacky worm, exposed hook. But a bit light for a good hook set on a long cast with a weightless t-rigged fluke.

The AOY Lowrider, LFC-5-168S is a good choice in the length you asked for. Although it only comes in the Lowrider Series, it's been a best seller for many years.

FYI..It also serves as a great small topwater, squarebill, chatterbait,rod.

I haven't had issues hooking up with the fluke when throwing it on a medium power rod, is there something I am missing about the weightless worm rod? I do tex-pose the hook when throwing a fluke, not sure if that needs to be factored into rod choice for me. I don't have any lowrider series yet, but I do have a Falcon Jason Christie 6'8 MH for throwing spinnerbaits, swim jigs and chatterbaits on.
