2.St Croix Mojo Bass

Mojo Bass aims to combine the power required to cast heavy lure and jigs and the sophistication required for lightweight pinpoint flipping applications.

This combination gives the user the best of both worlds and really makes a versatile rod.

You can probably fish this stick all season long, so if you’re on a limited budget and looking for a great all-rounder for your bat casting, this might be it.

Lightweight presentation techniques cannot combine maximum rods with sufficient casting power when required.

The space is made of SC-II graphite which is the premium graphite material of ST Crooks used on all their top rod ranges.

The spaces are created using a process owned by St. Croix called Integrated Poly Curve. The purpose of this process is to eliminate the natural transfer points that you find in the curve of any rod.

Eliminating these points helps to provide greater sensitivity from the tip to the handle and results in a higher power and smoother action rod.

3. Ugly Stik Elite Baitcasting Combo

The Ugly Stik GX2 is known worldwide for its durability and strength.

4. Daiwa Tatula Casting Rod

The Bait Casting Rod’s Daewoo Tetula Casting Rod line is designed with one thing in mind, which is as light as possible.

Tatula, made using Daiwa’s X45 Bias, empties the lower surface of the resin, which generally contributes to the weight of most modern fishing rods.

However, weight loss does not come at the expense of strength, accuracy or sensitivity.

The Tetula is a very capable rod with a suitable lightweight beat casting rail that can throw some very small lures with point accuracy and very subtle presentation.

The Fuji Alconite guides are some of the best available and attach to the custom lightweight rail set. The hardware rods on these bars match the spaces perfectly.

Available in lengths from 6’10 “to 7’7” and with a good range of powers and actions, Tatula is suitable for freshwater lure fishing.
