Re: Which Three Casting Rods?

I remember the thread, the rod you went with was a med/heavy that I would use for a light jig/Texas rig rod. I would get a spinning rod to throw drop shot/light Shakey Heads. The last rod I would get is a crankbait rod med/med heavy for crankbaits and treble hook top waters.
