Im looking for a rod and reel combo that will be good for both jigging and casting. I live near the fox river in Wisconsin and would be casting cranks and jigging mostly. I have the trolling rods already just wondering what your guys opinions are? Thanks

I also FISHED with an elite tec rod. That's right, past tense. I really liked them.... But then they began to break quite easily and often. And not only for me, I have friends who have had the same problem. Now it is going to be St. Croix from now on. Sure they cost a touch more, but the warranty is worth it. Go ahead, break a Fenwick while it's still under warranty and try to get it replaced. It's a friggin nightmare.

I have a 6'9" Fenwick elite tech med/lite wit extra fast tip with a Stradic CI4+ 3000 perfect combination for jigging, pulling lindy rigs,river rigs and cranks up to 3/4 oz.

If I were you...I would spend good money on a jigging rod and then get a "cheap" casting rod. nice to have two rods set up anyways for each style.

It's tough to beat a 6'6" Medium, Fast action rod for an all-rounder'.

A medium action rod around 6' 10" to 7'would cover both jigging and cranks.

I would suggest you contact B&B Custom Rods in Ripon WI for your rod needs and rod related questions. His rods are impressive...
