Default 7foot medium action GLX....what would you use it for?

Any have this rod and found what use it works good for. Seems a little light for me for fishing jigs deep? Trying to decide if I should sell this rod to someone who could put it to better use.

I just ordered one last night. Split shot, drop shot, senkos; too light for a jig rod though. I'll pay for shipping if you just want to get rid of it.

If it is a mbr842 glx it is good for smaller jigs (1/4 oz), t-rig also good for the weightless senko, IKA rig, cranks. It is limber but has power in its own way.

I have 2 that I use for skaking worms, baby Brush Hawgs, etc. Great rod for 1/4oz jigs with 10lb fluoro.

It makes a good stick to get the dog out from under the bed or at least my wife thought so. It's a good 2 PIECE ROD now.

The rod you want to trade for is the 844. However it maybe is the greatest jig rod....or at least in the discussion for greatest jig rod.

probably one of those shallow cranking/spinnerbait $$$expensive$$$ rods...??

but yeah the 844 is great...everybody owns one except me...so jealous.
i use a 4x4 for my jig rod(not that sensitive but i use my bruised finger for any light bites)
