I'm looking to get a set of plugging rods and I figured I would ask all of your for your suggestions. I don't want to break the bank but want nice rods. I have a set already but feel like they are to stiff and pull the hook on the strike. Thanks for any input

What rods are you running now, and what main line and leader? Why do you feel they are being pulled on the strike? Drive bys are pretty common, where they will smack the plug but not commit and turn in the current to bury it. Any photos/descriptions of your rod holder angles relative to the water as well?

I've been running big lake lead core rods with 20lb mono and 17lb floor leader. I've also changed hooks plugs to owners. I know this is my problem just looking to get the right set of rods. Thank you for your help

Gotcha! Yes I would say those are not best suited haha! I have a buddy who is constantly changing out his gear. I think he still has 2 sets he’s not using sitting in his basement. Where are you located? One set is shimano and the other is Loomis.

I’m Adams buddy with the plug rods, I’ll get the plug rod models for you and pricing. Both are great, I have three of each. I also have three okuma low profile line counter reels. I’m not a professional on bait casters, but two of them have something up with the drag when you reel. But they work just fine, we caught a lot of fish on them. I was going to have a buddy check them out, but I’d make you a deal if interested!
