Heavy Bass Fishing Rod Suggestion

John HaggertyJohn Haggerty Senior MemberSarasota, FL or RVingPosts: 231 Deckhand
I'm looking to get my wife into a heavy spinning rod to power fish for largemouths.  She is a petite older woman, so it needs to be lightweight.  She currently fishes a 7ft. MH with 20# braid.  I'm looking to get her into 50# braid.  I'm leaning towards a Dobyns Sierra 705.  Any ideas?  Thanks!
