    I use an all star WR1 medium heavy rod. I used to bass fish with artificial, and like the stiffness. I also have an ugly stick, but it doesn't react as quick. Rod tip is to flimsy. Academy puts their rods on sale in October or November. I bought mine for $25 and $30. I wouldn't mine a Shimano rod for the same price and stiffness. Lord Bless.

    I am wondering why you don't use a spinning rod/reel for cork fishing and save the Chronarch for artificials.? Cheap, casts farther with better accuracy and fewer (if any) backlashes. I keep a spinner setup in my boat in the winter when the water is real cold for use with a popping cork and artificial (fished at a controlled depth, near the bottom) for redfish. There are probably better opinions and advise, but it works for me. I'll trade you a real nice Lone Star Coastal Series rod and Shimano reel (spinning combo) for that Chronarch!

    Very true Termo. You can cast farther, use lighter artificial, less backlash (if you don't over spool it), fight a fish just the same. The only problem that I've had with spinning reels is I have problems feeling the bite. I've bass, catfish, stripper fished. A friend of mine would say: he hit it. He would set the hook, and he had a fish. I switched to a bait caster, and I started feeling the fish. That is just me. I've seen people where they can feel the fish when they hit the artificial using a spinning reel. It all depends on the person. Lord Bless.

    I use a baitcaster for all artificials. I was suggesting the spinning combo for the cork fishing only (AND trying to get that Chronarch!) HAR!
