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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
