Carrot Stix 7'9" CLTX791XH-C

Recommended Posts

Yes, another thread about the carrot stix but this time about a specific one. I am eyeing up the 7'9" Fast-XHeavy (CLTX791XH-C) version. I need a good flippin stick to punch through heavy slop. I also see that I can use this as a swimbait rod because it can handle up to 3.5 oz lures. The boys at TW said its a fine stick to do double duty. I am thinking about pairing it up with a Daiwa Megaforce Plus baitcaster. I was also contemplating the shorter 7'6" version. Thoughts or advice? Much appreciated.

awesome rod but i duuno id think about putting a better heavier duty reel on that rod spec. if your going to dump your hooks in slop and heavy veg.cause you get a bite in that remember your going to be pulling up 20lbs of that junk along with the fish,something with a heavy duty drag,id go curado or revo sx or higher end daiwa

I just modified my post.  I meant the Megaforce Plus but don't know if that is must better than the regular Megaforce.  I was looking for a 7.1:1 reel and it stood out.  It felt smooth when I was at the store but again, I don't know how the drag is.  Thanks for the heads up.  I 'll look into some other reels.

alls i know of the upgraded megaforce is more bearings as for everything i else i.e drag and all i believe its the same,i know ppl who have the viento from daiwa and they say after awhile the twitchin bar becomes more pain then a bennifit.but cant go wrong on that rod i love my Cstick.email TW and see what they say see if they can give you more specs on the upgraded mforce

Bassprofishguy,

Thanks for the feedback on the C-stix.  Do you use yours for flippin/pitchin or other applications.  What is your stix paired with?

i got the 7mh fast and 7xh...both paired with revo sx'x for the power of the drags,i use one for just like you pitching into slop holes and the other i use for deep crankn or whatever i feel like putin on it that day,but for the money that stick cant be beat go read reviews everyone raves about them theyre taking the lead over 300-400 rods i have more expensive rods but i love this rod sure its a little ugly haha with that bright orange but it handles like a cadillac.plus a lifetime warranty.just weird how a rod can be made out of actual carrots (or should i say carrot nano fibers) dunno but its awesome...lemme know what you think of it when you get it and hold onto it

I hate my megaforce and it's horrible "twitch bar". Dang thing won't stop flapping when I would reel in. First one did it out of the box and the replacement after a few months. It now sits on the shelf colecting dust.

if your gonna spend that amount of $$$ go with the td tierra, a substantial upgrade over the MF plus. only 10-15 more$ most of the time, or if your on TW go with the Black Widow II, its colors match the carrot SICKLY! and its a better reel than the MF plus

Thanks for the recs.  That black widow looks sweet.  Unfortunately, neither reel is 7.1:1.

because of you and this thread i bought one.  I figured for 89.00 what the hell.  i needed a new flippin/frog stick.  they're ugly an i've heard the break but with a warranty like that i said what ever. if i don't like it i'm sure some newb woud take it off my hands for what i had in it.  i get it tomorrow and i'll post my review for what ever it's worth

It would probably make a better rod than it would a jig ;D

I use a 7'9"xh counter-weighted with 6 ounces, matched with a 2nd gen Quantum Tour PT 7:1 for flipping.  It balances perfectly for flipping, keeps the rod tip up effortlessly, feels light as a feather and can pull up the friggin' lake bed with 65 lb. Power Pro.

well... I'm impressed.  I cant believe how light this rod is for almost 8feet. it pitches and flips effortlessly and I think i kinda looks cool with a curado. I'll be honest and say that  i was one who said to myself "i'll never buy one of those" just because that's what people were saying. but on the other hand i'm glad i waited because i got one for 89

holy crap...6 oz. I used 2 oz. and i thought it felt perfect.  I have a curado e7 on it.
