Any one use the Muse Black 6'5" H/F frog rod?

Recommended Posts

I have been looking for a short frog rod for a while now and just stumbled on the Muse Black 6'5" H/F.  I want it to use on my kayak for walking frogs while seated and to use as a GP heavy cover rod when hiking into more remote spots where a 7'6" rod is going to be a pain to manage.  It's main use will be walking hollow-body frogs but I will also throw some buzzbaits and swim jigs with it as well.  I am not super concerned with sensitivity but do want something with a tip suited for walking.  I would also love to know where it's balance point is.  

 

Has anyone used this rod and have a strong opinion about it one way or the other?

I guess I am going to have to be the guinea pig then.  The only other rods that seem like what I want are all non-USDM and so far I can't find an overseas shop to ship them too me. I also think they will be too long in the butt for me, so I think the Muse is worth rolling the dice on.

You know I thought about getting that rod, as I prefer shorter rods (and especially rods with shorter handles), and I could use frog rod that makes walking easy.

 

But I realized I already had a "Medium-Heavy" rod (totally different company) with the same lure weight rating, that is just a few inches longer, and also has a short butt, and I wondered just how much different this model of the muse would actually be from what I already have.

I do as well, a pair of them even, Fenwick SM Elite MH/F.  It's rated for the same weights and almost the same line as the Muse 6'5".  It's 4" longer but I don't know how much it matters.  I love the Fenwicks, but I don't find them great as frog rods, so I am still thinking about the Muse.
