Kastking Speed Demon Frog Rod

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience with this rod? I see that they will be going on a prime sale next week and wanted to pick one up. It states it is rated to 4 oz, but most frog rods I have seen are up to 2oz. I am actually going to be using this for ocean fluke fishing and if it really is like a broomstick then great I can use it for bucktailing.

I haven't seen many reviews on any of the speed demon rods but my interest is indeed piqued. I would love to try a few that are not bottom contact rods. Id imagine they fish every bit as good as a $200 rod. Most of the reviews you find are from sponsors so of course they are going to say its the greatest thing since sliced bread. A 4oz rated frog rod probably wont have a fast enough tip to easily walk the dog bit who knows... Let us know when you get one. I think its worth the gamble.

What lure rating are you looking for?  I suspect it will mostly match its rating, it's gonna be a stout, stiff rod.  If you look at the pro tournament speed demon series, their frog rod looks more appropriate at 1+oz.

Bass series, at 1-4oz, that cuts out a lot of frogs from min rating and the average frog isn't 2 oz...not sure what they are doing there.  It's like a short, medium swimbait rod.  It certainly would be nice to hear from someone who has one.

 

I checked Amazon questions and found that direct question to KK:

Answer:
Hi there,Yes that is the correct rating for that rod.

Speed Demon Bass Series ($80)

KRDCSTSD-72FR1

7'2" XH-F 1-4oz line 50-80#  weight = 6.1 oz

 

If that's on sale from $80, that's gonna be a steal...but not for froggin IMO.  And KK says the rating is correct...so if you want a 1-4oz, it looks like it may be just that.

yeah i may give it a try, but just odd that it is such a stiff rod even compared to all the other frog rogs in their other line up. ultimately if that is true then it will work in my favor in the ocean

Don't most frog weigh less than 1 oz?  would that rod work well with .5 ounce frog?

Thats a swimbait Bammy rig rod. I have a few KK rods but their ratings are a little on the heavy than actual side. Their Royale Legend Heavy is more MH.

I don't know that rod, but it's either a frog rod, or fishes as labeled, not both. I fish inshore with flipping sticks a lot, I find they do better at jigging and fighting fish than frog or swim bait rods. Quincy is for Haddock and winter flounder, no?... :)

quincy is for winter flounder haha but i go down to RI about an hr and 15 min drive to fish off block island. i am hoping it fishes as labeled and i can bucktail 4-6 oz bucktails for the fluke. for my lighter fluke rod i do use a 7'6" flipping stick for my 2-3 oz bucktails

I have a few Speed Demon Pro rods and really like them but the frog rod isn't one of them. Those specs seem way off.

just a thought but i wonder if they just cut down the flipping stick from 8' ft to 7'2" I could imagine those ratings to be true then..haha

I have 4 speed demon pro rods. They are nice rods for the price,

 I don't like the technique specific designation of each rod. 

I would personally just like to know the length, power, action, and number of eyelets on the rod.

One persons worm rod might be an others, fluke rod.

I mentioned the worm rod, because I think it is too light for that application. It does however make an awesome fluke rod.

I must be in the minority, because they seem to be selling a lot of rods.
