    What am I typically looking for in terms of action and power ( please state both!) when wackying senkos? Does it make a difference with different style worms other than stickbaits?
    Let's see how close I am?
    You need a slower than texas rig rod action because the hook is open, and then a power that fits the weight of a senko. So would a typical crankbait rod work?

    Well, the only application I like for crankbait rods for is crank baiting. Its such a slow action and soft power that you really be doing yourself a disservice by fishing a worm with it. A regular worm rod that you would fish a T-Rig with will work just fine for your wacky rig applications.
