Is There A Difference Between An "alabama Rig" Rod And A "pure" Swimbait Rod

Recommended Posts

I know both need to obviously be rated to throw the weight without failing. I am now seeing A-Rig rods marketed and wonder if you could to regular Swimbaits (6-8" hudds, BBZ's, Punkers) or is there a difference in the action, etc. that makes it "Possible" but not really ideal? I saw the Skeet Alabama Rig rods and got to thinking...

Thanks all.

Technique specific labels are almost purely marketing. "Swimbait" and "A-Rig" rods should be interchangeable as long as the total weight is within a given range.

What DVT said.

I had a very good customer order a swimbait rod. before I was was finished with it, he ordered a A-rig rod also. He was shocked when I handed him only one rod when he ordered two. I saw no reason to build him another rod when the one I was building would handle both tasks just fine. He was pleasantly surprised after he fished it.
