|I just found a used chaos tackle 8'11" XH SWAT that throws 3-10 oz. Before I buy it, I want to make sure I'll be able to throw the lures I want to. I'm looking to through some small to medium rubber (mini medussas, poseidon 10s, dyin dawg), some small to medium jerk and glide baits (6 and 7.5 inch phantom soft tails, 9 inch suicks), some larger crankbaits (around 9 inches) and some double 12 bucktails. |
Chaos Tackle has a chart showing what lures to throw on what rod and the XH SWAT is rated to for small rubber and large glidebaits, but not for large crankbaits or bucktails. My concern is that even though the crankbait and dying dawg only weigh 6 ounces and the bucktails weigh 4 ounces, that I won't be able to work them properly. Is this rod going to be a good choice for me? I just want to make sure I'm getting the right kind of rod for what I want to throw.
