Title: Choices...A-rig/Frog/Small swimbait
Post by: PSUangler on November 24, 2018, 06:30:15 PM
I don't know anything about the Dobyns lineup except for what I've read here. 

Looking for a rod that can handle occasional umbrella rig/frogging/small swimbait use.  Are these techniques even compatible with the same rod?

Thanks in advance.

I would focus on the HP735C, HP765C and possibly the HP764C. You can always call the shop anve them the exact weights or baits and they can narrow it down better, but I think this trio will be mentioned.

Dink Dawg is dead on. The 765 is probably the best option.

What size swimbaits ? If you were thinking the 68 or glide baits like the s waver plus the A rig I would think the Fury 795 would be good. I don't think I would use it for frogs however.

I would call the Dobyns shop I have found them very helpful & I have never got the bum's rush. They will most likely be open tomorrow & T/W will still have 20% until 5 pm CA. time if your in a hurry. I can tell you that when I ask about a frog rod the person I spoke with recommended the DC736C FH or the DC 735C FH. He told me that he fished the Delta & used the 736. So I went with hie advice & will tell you it's the best frog I have ever owned bar none & I have been Bass fishing on Santee Cooper since 1974. I have only owned the rod for about a year. I have bought a 735 since & use it for many other things besides frogs, small swim baits, Carolina rigs, etc. They are both excellent rods.

These are a wide range of baits. Depending on the weight of A-Rig, I'd say a 735C would be the best for all techniques mentioned. There's rods that will fit each technique a little better but for all around with the ones you listed, a Champ 735C will get it done. THX!!
