Reel for Frog Rod

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

      I have a Dobyns Sierra 735C that I plan on using for frogging mostly (may also use it for some swim baits and my whopper plopper).  Looking to buy a good reel for it under $150.  The 2 reels that I'm looking at right now are the Lew's Tournament Pro G for $119.99 and the Daiwa Tatula CT Type-R for $104.99.  Which one do you guys think would work better for frogging on this rod?  Open to other reel suggestions for under $150.

I have a Dobyns fury 735 teamed up with a Diawa Tatula CT Type-R. It's a good combination

All of my baitcasting reels are Daiwa...except for the reels on my two frog rods.  I love the Daiwas (I own Fuego CTs, Tatula CTs, Tatula CT-Rs, and a Tatula SV) but the reels on my frog rods are both Abu Garcia Revo SX (one Gen 3 and one Gen 4).  Both will throw a hollow body frog a country mile, handle 50lb braid beautifully, and they have 24lbs of drag to haul bass out of the lily pads.  I also throw my Whopper Plopper 130s with one of those rods.  Perfect reel for frogs.  Never had a single problem with either of them.

Make a list of the things that you would find beneficial for a reel on a frog rod.  Once you do that you will know what your looking for.

The Pro G..........I just bought my third one on sale at TW and I didn't even need it!  But it'll replace something, somewhere.......lol

Any name brand reel will do. Just know the reel's line capacity and speed.

 

Here is what Ish says about frog fishing and he is a master of frogging:

Note he is not hawking any specific reel for his sponsors.

 

Have fun making your selection.

I matched mine with Diawa Fuego CT 8:1.1. Mainly do to my budget. Paid less than 70 bucks. Very nice reel

I am a Shimano guy, but a few years ago I went to our BPS and they were having a sale on their ProQualifier at $70, so I picked one up out of curiosity, put 50lb braid on it and used it on my frog rod for three years.  That little reel was a work horse and never failed me.  Very smooth.  I got $50 for it at the BPS annual trade in toward a Chronarch MGL and it was still in perfect shape.
