New Lindy rig rod

18 posts in this topic

My friend broke my old lindy rig rod (7' Medium) so I'm in the market for a new one. I'm not a big walleye guy anymore so I thought best to ask for opinions on here.

I'd like to stick with shimano but am open to other suggestions. I run 10/4 fireline. I'm thinking about the Compre 7' Medium Light - Fast.

Any thoughts? Length actions brand... There's no wrong answer...

What is your budget. Can't go wrong with a Loomis IMX HSR 9000 7'6" ML, or St. Croix legend Elite 7' ML

I broke my sons shimano and ended up at Reeds and picked up a St Croix for less then 90 bucks much better rod and balanced much better than the shimano. Just my thoughts. Jeff

If you are looking for something around $100 I would suggest a Limit Creek smoothie 6'9" rod that is awesome for riggin and jiggin

The Compre isn't a bad rod for the money. But if you're willing to spend a little more, I would highly recommend the Shimano Crucial 7' med-light fast. I think they're in the $170 range.

Don't go with anything else. That is a superb rigging rod for a reasonable price.

The Loomis is a great rod but for a St. Croix I'd go with the tournement legend 7'6" live bait rig. Both are great rods and even my wife can lindy rig with one of these two.

compres have a lifetime warranty and shimano is very good to deal with. I have the same rod you described and would definitely buy another. i have owned nearly every brand of rod and am most impressed with shimano value and service

That's part of the reason I usually buy the Compre I've never had to exchange one but my friend has at Thorne Brothers and it was no questions asked.

Rodmaker is right, don't overlook cabelas. They too have great rods for great prices.

Cabela's XML rods are nice . I would compare them to a GL2 or GL3. Watch for specials on these.

Cabela's is having specials on these (XMLTi) rods now. I picked one up for $59 online today.

Price depends on model you want. Seems like the best prices were on the split grep models which is what I wanted to try since I have never fished with a split grip

Here's the WARRANTY info from the Limit Creek HSOforum.

It's a good warranty IMO. I think they are awesome rigging rods. I have a GLoomis HSR9000, St. Croix LE76MLF and Shimano CRS70ML and put them in the same boat, figuratively and literally.

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
      Considering the psychedelics are the most harmless group of drugs out there then by all means go for it. This is exactly what I mean when talking about legalization, public opinion in this country is so far away from the actual science it is kind of scary. Heck when prohibition was rocking pot was 100% legal here, just think about that for a second. There is almost no rhyme or reason to many of our laws you are a shining example of that.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
