New Flip / Pitch rod choices

Recommended Posts

Im in the market for a new flip pitch rod.

I currently have a quantium, like it but only problem is I find it pretty heavy, it bothers my wrists after a while.

In the market for $150 or less preferably, Would like to stay 7ft. don't think i would be comfortable with a longer rod than that.

Any suggestions?

I read when the carrot stix came out a lot of people liked them for the price, Do you all still feel the same way?

Any other rod suggestions? I was thinking a st. croix mojo but i have never held one or seen one for that matter.

if i were you i would pray dinkmaster hasn't sold his 7'1 kistler argon flip n' pitch in the flea market yet... and jump on that in a heart beat.  You wont find better at that price range.

Koopa is right, but i already sold it! I would suggest for flip/pitch you go with a well balanced 7' 6" rod. Much better leverage and hook setting power IMO. If you must have a 7' rod i would strongly suggest the Powell 705C on sale right now from TW for $118! The strength and sensitivity of the Powell rods is hard to beat at that price!

I have a Mojo 7 ft MF (about $80 as I recall at BPS) coupled with a Shimano Stradic 2500 spinning reel and I have YoZuri Hybrid 8 lb test on it.  It's probably what people normally think of as a flip/pitch combo  -- but, I have two bait casters and I've gone almost exclusively to the spinning combo for fishing around docks or down rock ledges with weighless sinkos and light jigs.

yeah, 8lb test and a medium spinning rod is probably not what most people are going to use for flipping/pitching. and by most I mean you're probably the only one.  ;D

haha dan you made me laugh really hard.

back to the topic, are you looking for a rod to pitch around docks, scattered grass, trees, and any other type of sparse cover... or are you looking to punch through mats or any "jungle like" cover? If you want an all around pitching rod for average cover/structure, I have been using the 7'H Falcon Bucoo recently, and REEEEALLY like it ($119.99). If your going to be needing a rod for matted hydrilla or other vegetation, definitely step up to a 7'6". No suggestion on the 7'6", have not found a rod I am too too fond of for under $150, but I do know that Falcon is eventually coming out with a 7'6" BuCoo model that will get the job done. ;)
