I am looking for the rod the will be the closest match to he older HE69MHAPC. It's my favorite Kistler rod (I have 10 of the LTA). I recently purchased 3 of the new Argon crankbait rods, and they feel terrific. So I'd like something that closely approximates the older LTA.
I read on the LTA forum that the new LTA with the X-fast tip has a bit more power than the previous LTA's, so there must be a difference. Will the new LTA X-fast tip affect (shorten) casting distance in comparison with the fast tip of the Argon? These rods will be used for TR worms and Senko fishing, and I'm guessing the Argon may be a closer match.
I'm planning on purchasing 2 rods of either model because I want my worm and Senko rods to feel the same. I really like the way the "APC" handles those baits, and would like the "new" additions to perform in a similiar manner. THANKS!
