I wanted to get your guys input on frog rods. I’ve been using the Dobyns champion 7’3 heavy extra fast action champion (Fred roumbanis frog rod) and haven’t been a fan of how stiff it is. Recently I read a review saying the champion 765cb glass rod is a great open water frog rod, which I’ve used for chatterbaits before. I’m just not a fan of extra fast tips. I’m going to test out the 736 this weekend for frogging on the delta but wanted to hear your opinions.
The DC 736C is the best frog rod I've ever used. I do have a lot of guys using DC 735C because it does the job "okay" and is more versatile to use for many other baits. If you go lighter still it will be easier to walk the baits and even cast but you'll lack the power to drive the hook home and have the power to pull fish out of the "crap" where you frog fish. If you want to catch them at a high percentage, you need a powerful rod. THX!!!
Thanks guys. Im apparently dyslexic lol. Im talking about using the 736cb glass for frogging. Im going to try it in open water over the weekend. If it doesnt work out the way i hope then i might consider looking into the DX746C or just keep working the 736c i have.
Honestly the DC 736 CB Glass is one of our top rods, but it'll make a horrible frog rod. It's got too much load back into the blank for good frog hooksets and power to pull them out of the slop. It's a great rod and you'll find a lot of uses for it. THX!!
Thanks Gary. I love the 736cb, I landed my pb on it with a heavy hitter chatterbait. But that all makes sense and I appreciate the insightGary Dobyns wrote: ↑Tue May 24, 2022 5:52 pm Honestly the DC 736 CB Glass is one of our top rods, but it'll make a horrible frog rod.
