New Caster, Frog setup suggestions

Recommended Posts

I got a Daiwa Exceler 100HLA  and wondering what's the best setup ratio to frogging and flipping. Any Anglers out there that can help a guy.

7.x:1 or 8.x:1

That Exceler is 6.3:1 and will work fine though.

That reel will work fine. I use some of those reels and some Tatula Type Rs and even a couple of Tatula CT.

What I prefer for flipping, pitching and frogging is a 8-1 or even a 7.x-1 and always a leftie for anything I cast out but retrieve using the rod.

This includes frogs, topwaters, pitching, flipping and jerkbaits and jigs. Anything I chuch and wind I like righties.  Here is what I would do. Pair that reel up with your frog rod for now. If and when you buy a new rod instead of buying a reel to match that new rod, buy a faster reel and swap them.  Most of us prefer the 7s and 8s so if a fish misses a bait we can reel back in fast and recast out quick. It is not because a fish eating a frog swims that fast!!!   LOL. Enjoy your combo.
