MJ5,
Good info. But I was more curious about open water walleye rods. I should have clarified

Seabass77,
Jigging-Fenwick or 6 foot Loomis
Casting-Pinnacle PWT
Lindy riggin-Fenwick or 6.5 foot Loomis

When casting I sometimes use the Fenwick if I'm fishing soft plastics.

Good Fishing, Matt.

I couldn't resist replying to this post.

Since I primarily jig for walleyes, I like to use a rod so sensitive you could feel a Mayfly land on the tip. I have found that with my St. Criox Legend Elite. Hands down, choice #1.
2) Same rod only longer: more distance when casting also good for nice long sweeping hooksets.
3) 6'6" Fenwick HMG: A little softer action, used for pulling spinner-rigs.
4) 6' Fenwick Triggerstick Baitcaster: throwing crankbaits or trolling the heavier stuff.

MJ5, you must have stolen my Croxton fishing bag! Your ice fishing arsenal is almost identical to mine! (Nice choices by the way.)
