Revo Toro rod recommendation

Recommended Posts

I would like to get some recommenrdations for a quality rod to pair up with my new Revo Toro. I plan on throwing heavier baits but want something strong but lightweight.

Any help would be appreciated.

I took advantage of the free Fenwick Techna AV Muskie rod with purchase of a Toro at the Muskie Show. Went with the 8' MH and had Thorne Bros add 2 inches to the handle (14" instead of 12). I love the combo Very light setup. Now that Fenick has the new Muskie Elite Tech line out, you may start to see these going on clearance.

I also took advantage of that deal and got a 6'6" XH at the expo. (it was the only rod they had left, and actually the height of a rod I wanted, but not for this reel) As of right now I have my Toro paired up with that rod and it's great for really roasting small tails, but I got the rod specifically for cranks, jerkbaits, and WTD topwaters. my boat is a 14 ft. aluminum so I cast and retrieve at water level, so it's nice to haev the short rod for those applications.

I have and have used several brands of rods, HMX's, Technas, Compre's, MI, Loomis, St Croix, Gander, Pete Mania, Thorne Bros ect. The fit and balance of the Predator is unmatched in any I have thrown or own yet. Makes throwing glides, jerk-baits, cowbells seem like throwing a jig for walleyes. I used to carry 3-5 combos, but can do all I need with just 2 now, my 9' Predator for everything under mag dawg weight and my 8' C Series Throrn Bros rod for mag dawgs , weagles, mag treats and big curlie sues. Loomis is currently at Thorns getting the cork extended and will use it as a back up since the wife gave it to me as a present. Next year another 9' Predator in the XH for big baits. I'll keep the 7'6 croix for my daughter to use the 2-3 times a year she goes and already sold the anchor, the MI monster heavy.

I got mine for a big blade rod, compaired it with the Loomis Steel, and Sling Blade, IMO theres no comparison. Once I had the Predator in my hands with the Toro on it I knew it was the one and worth every penny. The other 2 rods just didn't feel as balanced with the Toro. And the big factor I wanted a 9' and the Predator is the only rod in that class that offers a full 9' blank vers the Loomis or Sling Blade that need to be extended to achieve 9' lenths.

You get what you pay for. Esox mag touched on two things that are very important, IMO. Balance and weight. You want to spend a 12 hour day chucking big baits? Having a light rod and a balanced rod sure does take the work out of it.

Yup, you cannot go wrong with a Predator, either H or XH, Lonnie does them right. Tight Lines!!!

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
