Carrot Stick For Flipping????

Recommended Posts

I would figure that would be great. They are like and a really good amount of handle. So I figure it would do awesome.

I have the 7'3 and now 7'6 MH. Both are great for pitching. The thing is with these rods is the length is all in the rod. Not too much handle and might take a little to get use to. But because the rod is so light you really don't need a really long handle.

I beat up my 7'3 MH on Champlain this year. It had 65 pound braid on it 9/10 of the year and was put through h..l. I caught a 16 pound Bowfin on it and it stood up great. (Didn't realize what the VT state record bowfin was until talking with a buddy a few days later).

i thought about the 7'3 just for pitching around docks and down bluff walls.

You can use it in the nasty stuff not just around docks and lighter cover. One thing about the Carrot's is even though it says MH, it compares more to a Croix or Loomis heavy. For example the 6'7 medium has too stiff of a tip for me to throw any treble hooked baits or baits with lightwire hooks. Where as I would throw both of those types of baits on my medium Croix's or Loomis rods.

I have the 7'6"H and its a great flippin rod.

I used it mostly for throwing swimbaits last year up to 3oz without a problem.

Great rod IMO for a couple different techniques.  I personally like a little shorter rod for pitching, but that doesnt mean you wont like it for that.
