Shimano Casitas 7.2 on a Frog Rod

Recommended Posts

Does it have enough muscle to be used for this purpose ? Thoughts and opinions?

Are you worried about the graphite frame?

Yes, I love the Casitas but my main line of thought is ; over the long haul will the graphite composite frame show its weaknesses when used with this type of lure ?

I see. Are you using 65lb braid in heavy cover for over 7lb bass? I used to use an old lews graphite frame reel for frogging. It never flexed but did wear out in two years. It was actually when I started buying more expensive reels that last much longer. But if you already have a Casitas I would just use it.

I have several casitas. They do flex with the load from a heavy stick, wad of hydrilla and a fish. I switched punching and frogging to a citica.  For me cost is a concern.  The older citica g7 cam be had on Ebay for good prices.

No usually 40lb Zilla Braid for 2 to 6lb Largies in Michigan. Occasionally I fish Florida waters where the big girls live, but only a few times a year.
