the hmg have the best feel of the group med would be a tad light for alot of lures i would run it with nothing but plastic tackle-not big baits -flukes or bulky stuff. hook sets are fine if you use a 5 "in senko or 7" ribbon tail or zoom worm.
i use a 6' ml spinning for under dock finesse work.
a quality spinng reel is a must. i use quatum energy.

i find 6 foot rod to be the lenth of choice for dock work.

I have one Fenwick which I've had for seven years and I like it very much. It's an HMG, spinning, 6'6", one piece, medium power. It's a general-purpose rod for me and I use just about every kind of lure on it. I wouldn't hesitate to buy more when the need arises.
