    St Croix Legend Tournament "Big Dawg" rod

    looking for a rod to throw mag dawgs and large cranks. Is this rod too heavy for the occasional depthraider? i will not be tossing pounders, just the mag dawg, but i tend to like my rods a little bit heavier than most.

    thanks, Rob

    Hi Rob:

    The Big Dawg rod is a little heavy for DepthRaiders and other similar crankbaits, but will suffice. I think the Sling Blade rod, which was designed for twin tens, is the best crankbait rod I've ever used, but if you like your rods a little on the heavy side go with the Big Dawg. It's also my first choice with Mag Dawgs.

    You'll also find the Big Dawg is wicked on hooksets :o and fish fights.

    Can't go wrong with either choice Steve mentioned. I have both and prefer the big dawg for pounders and the sling blade for cranks and smaller plastic.

    What the heck, buy both of them.:-)

    I like the Sling Blade best for casting crankbaits,but the Big Dawg is better for trolling crankbaits.
