7'6 flipping stick vs 8 '

Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for flipping stick wanted your pros and cons on a 7'6 six power flipping stick vs 8' five power flipping stick either a champion or champion extreme,my main question is will the extra 6" increase fatigue,the longest rod ive used is a 7'3 5 power,minium weight I use is 1oz and at times I go to 2oz -2 1/2. Thanks guys appreciate it!!!

If they are both well balanced it shouldn't be an issue.

I own a dxhp 795. Balance and action is great. My problem is it's too long for the type of fishing I do

How big of a guy are you? The extra 6 inches will come with more fatigue. The industry standard is 7’6” but each persons preference is a bit different. A longer rod will help with hooksets and getting the bass out of thick stuff. But endurance and accuracy are the two most important factors. My general opinion on pitching (and flipping) is start off shorter and go longer after you learn the technique

Im avg size guy,I'm using dobyns fury 735 it's a great rod,great power,light, sensitive,I need something longer to make it easier to pitch them ,I didn't realize higher end rod that 6" would fatigue you,years ago I bought a 7'6 lighting rod that will fatigue u throwing a 1-2oz bait,but my 7'3 zero issues as far as fatigue

If 3-6" of graphite is wearing you out to the point of fatigue you're either bad out of shape or your setup is out of balance!

I would think the Dobyns flipping specific rod would be adequate ... *For a cool flipping video google Canadian Pro Bob Izumi and watch HIS flipping technique - it may change your mind on flipping rod length !
