Im sure its a nice rod but I do not own one. Currently I use a 7' Medium St. Croix. I like the longer rod because I usually let the senko fall on slack like and the longer rod really helps pick up slack when setting the hook.

I use my 7'2" cumara for senko type lures some. It works fine.

I own both the Crucial, and the Cumara. There is a difference in weight and I much prefer the Cumara, however, it carries a much heavier price tag. You cant go wrong with the Shimano warranty either. Not that G Loomis is a bad one. Actually Shimano owns G-Loomis. I have both the 7'2" M action and the 7'2" MH.. both are a great rod.

Lucky,

I own 3, have owned and used them for a few years now. My opinion is that they are the best rods for Senko fishing I have used. I have no trouble with braid or flouro with them having thrown up to 30# Fireline and 10# flouro. I also have used and liked them with small swim baits. The length is just right and I have no problem skipping senkos under docks. As for the strength my largest MN bass to date 6lb 9 oz came on that rod. As a disclaimer I am on Loomis pro staff but would same the same thing about the rod even if I wasnt.

    • I guess I never associated a north wind wind lower pressure. Or a south wind with higher pressure.  Learn something new everyday
    • I watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg or mb; millibars) or when it swings up past 30.0 mb. That's my reference for "highs" or "lows" on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. I  love my old dial Aneroid barometer.  They last forever, too.  Mines kicking about 35 years... (That's not mine, pic is for low and high reference...)    
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
