BCR 874 as frog rod?

Recommended Posts

I did some research and found several people use this rod as their frog rod. My question is, would the tip load up enough to cast a buzz frog with a 5/0 hook? It looks like the frog itself only weighs 1/8oz (???) It would be the Mossyback version if that matters. Also looking at the 844 IMX and Dobyns 735. Thanks for the help.

I've used the 874 for ribbit type toads and when paired with the right reel, casting distance was never an issue for me. It's a pretty stiff rod and doesn't load extremely well, but a well tuned reel certainly helps out. I currently use the BCR 875 for hollow body frogs and have found it very well suited to that technique. I've run through several of the Loomis BCR rods for ribbit toads and have settled on the BCR 855 for that purpose. The BCFR 863 also makes a fine ribbit rod and hollow frog rod as well.
