Needs better guides I bought the 2-piece 7 foot ML IM8 graphite spinning rod (Model WA70MLS-2) in April 2010. The rod handle is fantastic. Very confortable. Works well with the XPS weight balance kit. Although it says it is designed for lure weights of 1/16 to 1/2 oz. I'm not sure that is true. I was able to cast 1/6 oz (6 lb test) a decent distance, and 1/8 oz not quite as far, but I'm not sure it will work for something as light as 1/16 oz. I'll have to respool with 4 lb test and find out. The major criticism I have is that the guides have terrible inserts (they are not Fuji - I compared them to some Fuji guides I have). It's almost as if someone forgot to polish the inserts. I have an old Ugly Stick that has smoother guide inserts! I wouldn't mind paying more for the rod if it had better guides. I see that the price has gone up $10 since I bought my rod. Are they putting better guides on the newer versions? December 24, 2010
Slip Bobber Rod This make a excellent slip bobber rod for walleyes. I have used other rods costing 4X more but they are no better than this 7' ML spinning set up. I combined it with a Browning Fishing Medallion GT spinning reel. This is the best corking combo for monster eyes on world famous Mille Lacs. Thanks Gary & Keith... every hook-set gives me a grin.

excellent rod I picked up the 6'6 ML for some walleye fishing, I am yet to get a walleye on it,, I am using it for some fun Bass fiahing,, This rod handles 3+lb bass using 6lb test,, I cant say enough, its light,, sensitive,,Whata Hoot,,, My next will be the 7 ft.. Reel Soon..... June 9, 2010

I intend on using a super line on my rod. Do I use the actual wt. of the line as my guide or its equivalent wt. if it were mono?

10lb mono dia. the super line is the actually 20lb wt. super line.

Do I use a rod that is built for 10lb as if mono dia, or 20lb actual wt of super line.

A: 
if you strictly follow the guidelines you would use the equivalent super line size even though it is rated at a much larger strength rating - i have two 6 1/2' and three 7' signature rods for jigging and also rigging live bait but still use 1, 2, and 4 lb diameter equivalent power pro braid and never have had a problem even though i am not following the guidelines.

A: 
When you're lining a rod, you have to pay attention to the line weight range. When you go over that range, you now have a rod that will break before your line will. Not a good idea to cross over that limit. It is the test rating of the line that is important with rods. With reels, it is the diameter that matters for capacity.

A: 
If it is between these two, a better jigging rod is the medium action. It has more backbone for heavier lures and can handle the water resistance that makes those baits do their vibe thing. Getting into 20 ft of water, the medium will be better as well.

That being said, a shorter rod is better for verticle jigging from a boat. I'd go 6'6" or even 6' like I do. A shorter rod will let you react more quickly, you'll be closer to the boat and the sonar, and you won't be moving the baits so much. When you use a longer rod, the bait's movements are more amplified distance wise than with a shorter rod.

I recently purchased the hm85 7' Walleye rod and think it might be too long for fishing in a boat with two other people. For a combination of jigging and fishing soft baits are there any advantages of using the 7' rod over the 6' rod?

The longer rod allows better hookset. It also will cast further.

A: 
I prefer 7' rods over 6'. When you are drifting or fighting fish it gives you more control and helps keep line out of motor props. Just keep you rod tip high in the air.

A: 
Steve, it all depends on how big your boat is, what you're doing, and how many rods you want to own.

The 6' has an advantage in quick response and accuracy when you're in close. Generally a boat rod for vertical jigging and pitching in shallow. The 7' is more of an all around rod and one that will give you more casting distance, allow you to throw cranks, and will give you more line pickup on the hookset. Generally, the longer rod will have a more forgiving tip for rigging too. I would go for the 7' if you don't want to own both. I wouldn't worry about room in the boat when you're picking the rod though.
