great rod at a great price this rod has incredible feel once it is in your hands teamed mine up with the pro qualifer for a great combo for under $200.00. it can handle most any frashwater fish out there. March 20, 2013
Best rods for the money! I have been using BPS rods and reels for over 15 years and these JM Signature II Series rods are the best yet. They are light weight and incredibly strong. Their sensitivity is second to none, they practically feel like an extension of your arm. When coupled with the JM Signature Series baitcaster reels you know you are holding a tool and not just another rod and reel. I use the 7'2'' medium action for crankbaiting and the 7'2'' MH action for all sizes of plastics. My hook-ups have definately increased since I started using these products. Well done!!! September 17, 2012
Best Rod I have been using extreme rods for several years and I thought they were the best rods until I used a Johnny Morris Signature Series II. I could not believe how much better the feel of this rod was. September 14, 2012
GREAT STUFF THIS IS A GREAT ROD. LIGHT WEIGHT, SLEEK AND GREAT STYLE. I LOVE IT June 15, 2012

I have 4 flippin rods but always lean towards the 7'10" Wild Green, HEAVY from Carrot Stix. My back-up is the Johnny Morris Sig Series 7'10" HEAVY. I use heavy to get out of thick grass.

A: 
Go with the 7'6" HEAVY or longer if available in the Johnny Morris series. I liked the Extreme 7'10" when they made it with the rod balancing kit for the handle. These are heavy rods for pitching 1/2 - 2oz jigs. I would recommend purchasing a separate rod balancing kit from BPS to even the weight distribution and a reel that has a flipping switch. The Extreme reel used to have a model that had the flipping switch, but I dont think the newer 2012 models do.

long handle?

Details: 
Is the handle on the 7'2 MH rod too long? Online it looks pretty long. (I have a 6'9 MH carbonlite and I like the length of that handle so I'm wondering if this handle is a lot longer than my carbonlite.) Thanks.

A: 
The 7'2" rod is basically a 7' rod with an extra 2" of handle. I personally think the handle size is perfect but if you are happy with the 6'9" handle then this may not be the rod size for you.

A: 
This rod and the carbon black rod have the same blank as the the one on the previous Johnny Morris Elite and Signature Seriers rods . The deference is the grips and eyes and color and graphics . That being said I don't own one of these newer versions but do have a Elite 7' med/fast and it is awesome . A little heavier than most $200-$400 rods but they are more durable blanks and very very sensitive and rate as equals to my more exspensive rods in sensitivity . The small amount of extra weight is not enough to make rods hard to handle when using all day for sure . That little extra weight makes them much more ding an scratch resistant than the new extremely light weight IM-10 rods out there . I have two carbonlite rods now and they are slightly lighter but not much . They are sensitive but not on par with the signature series blanks . As far as the eyes go the signature series has better eyes than the carbon lights thats why when I go back to BassPro tomorrow I'm buying a new signature 7'2" med/fast over another carbonlight . Hope that helps you out in some way . Good luck and tight lines !

These are one piece rods . As far as bass rods or actually anyother type of rods go they are all one piece unless they are listed as two-piece or more . They will tell you if they are two or more in the description or in the individual rod descriptions and usually it is in the latter of the two descriptions . Hope that helps you out .

A: 
Fishing rods are made for different applications. Texas rigged worms and jigs are usually fished with a MH. Usually cranks are fished with a medium or medium light action. If you are limited to having only one rod then go to a medium action.

A: 
I think that you could use the 6'8" MH for certain cranking applications, such as shallow cranking in cover/brush/sticks, etc. If I were you, I would really try to find a cranking rod for most of your other crankbait fishing. Try to find a 6'6 to 7' MH with a moderate or moderate fast action. You won't regret it, it really does play the fish better and lets the fish get more of the bait in its mouth, which aids in initial hook-up.

A: 
The answer depends on the action and power of your mojo rod . If it is being used in heavy cover then I will assume that it is a med/hvy or hvy power rod and if it is you don't need another one in a two rod arsenal . I would go with a med/fast rod to compliment your other rod offering you a better range of techniques with a rod better suited to them . Also if you do go med. I would definately consider 12# line for all around test for a med. rod . One thing to consider would be to get extra spools for each reel to even further set up more precise presentations for individual techniques . Also another thing to consider is the 7'2" med rod because its a fast action which if fishing cranks you will be much happier with it over a extrafast action rod . A even more precise rod for cranking alone is a 7'-7'10" med/mod rod with even more give than a fast action rod . With a two rod system the the fast is the the middle of the rod do all rod . Just remember to be easy with the fish and to back off your drag the closer you get it to the boat when landing them while cranking and to doulble set the rod on spinnerbaits and plastics unless the hook is small gauge hooks and then one good hook set will usually suffice. Hope that helps you in some way .
