Flippin Rod ?

Recommended Posts

I want to buy a flippin rod at the Bass Pro Classic. I know to go to a long rod but do I go with a MH or H rod with a fast tip?

Personally, I like the medium heavy.

But what type of cover and structgure will you be pitching and flipping?

That will determine the rod you need, be it medium or heavy action.

Check out Denny Brauer's book or video on Jig Secrets and he explains the best rod to purchase before you make an investment.

If you can't wait, then Google flipping and pitching and see what the pros have to say.

And read the articles on this technique here on the forum.

Have fun.

Most true flippin' rods are hvy and mod-fast.... but most people don't do a lot of true flippin'.  The important question is- are you going to actually flip very much?

I'd definitely go with a Heavy for the flipping I do, when I do it.

Depends what you're flippin your bait into.

I want to flip and pitch with the same rod. I will be hitting docks,pads,and slop. So what do you think?

+1.  I do like my BCFR 894 for flippin' and pitchin'...I can get quite a bit more distance with that extra 5" versus a 7' rod.  Get yourself an 894 Mossyback if you can't afford a GLX...assuming you are going with Loomis  ;)

Pads and slop?  Definitely heavy action and the longer the better.  You're often trying to hoist 5lbs of salad along with the fish when fishing that type of cover so you need all the leverage and rod strength as possible.
