Which should I choose for a frog rod

Recommended Posts

I've narrowed it down to the rod I want but what specs should I choose for frogging? It's either going to be a 7'3" med-heavy, heavy, or mag heavy. Thanks

What rod? Each manufacture is different.

No question to me FR 735C Mag heavy for sure. The other rods will work okay for Horny toads in more open water situation.  Do not get me wrong, I love the other rods, but not for heavy cover frogging. If I want a frog flippin pitchin machine I go heavier.  when I think of the 734 I think of single hook reaction strike baits more like spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, senkos, spinnerbaits.  When i think of throwing hollow bodied frogs over top a lilypad field, hydrilla and other grass mats then i loo more towards a meat stick with enough tip.  Personally I use a 7 foot bu Garcia  original series Veritas in a MED HVY. All Veritas run on the heavy side of their rating so it more like a HVY with a quick tip. Another nice thing about the 735C is it can double for a carolina rig or a rod to throw big jigs deep.

Just a heads up, the action on the FR735 is a bit slower than that of the Savvy 735 or the Sierra 735. If you want the extra-fast tip, move up.
