I have a 7'3 and a 6'9 MH Carrot I use for jigs and such up to 1/2 oz. Love them both. The other cheap jig rod I have is an 7'6" Airrus Co-Matrix.

i feel that i have an excellent combo for jigs and texas rigged worms , it is the 7' XH fast action Carrot stix (CLTX701XH-C) paired with a REVO SX 7.1:1 , it is VERY SENSITIVE  and has got a ton of backbone , i just love it  ;)

i have the 6'9 mh original and it is very sensitive.  My dad was trying to set the hook when the jig was going through brush.

I love everything about my carrot stix but the horrible guides. I've has serious grooving issues. Just do a search if you want to see pics.

that's not my experience at all , i had 30 lb. powerpro on that rod for over a year fishing it almost everyday during last summer and fall with no guide wear at all , i almost prefer them to ceramic rings cause they don't break and fall out when your guides get dinged against something , now you notice i said ALMOST  ;D ;D

Well my daily flipping and pitching with just fluro carbon completely tore my guide on the tip up. Check it out.

I have the 6'10" medium heavy carrot stix gold I like it more then the other carrot stixs I have tried.  It seems to balance better and has a faster tip.  Plus I prefer the cork grips.  You might be able to find one on the boards for 150 if you look.

I hear ya but I only strung up fluro on that set up. Braid never touched that rod. This happened from holding my jig in my left hand a pitching my bait. I honestly love my Carrot it's light and very sensitive, but they should have used better guides.

x3 but mine is paired with a Curado 200E7. Very light rod, and great backbone. I have also used this rod to do large lipless cranks and some small swimbaits. Very versatile. No problem with the guides either (using P-Line CXX).
