Title: Any Sierra 735c. Rod Users ?
Post by: chrisD46 on September 01, 2020, 11:54:04 PM
I have a Sierra 734c. and found too good of a deal to pass up the Sierra 735c. to add to the Sierra collection. I plan to use it for Frogs with #50 b. braid and for flipping in and around moderate vegetation. *For those who have the Sierra 735c. - what are your favorite applications to use with this rod ?

That rod is great for swim jigs and buzzbaits.

*Thanks for replies - I had not considered swim jigs and buzzbaits ...

This is a very useful rod. It will work well for frogging.

I use mine for many different things, right now it's doing a lot of vibrating jig work. As the water cools it will be a extra jig flipping rod. I will also use it for large top water baits like spooks and whopper ploppers.

I bought my 735c to use as a light frog rod but it just didn't feel right to me . I tried it with a bunch of baits and it really shines as a vibrating jig rod. I throw a 1/2 oz. Jackhammer with a 4" Zako trailer on 16# fluorocarbon.  It's got enough tip to really fire the bait out there, and enough backbone to rip it through the grass.

*What line  and weight are you using on your 735c. ? I would imagine the difference between braid and FC or co-poly line would make a big difference in how the rod responds ?

I use K9 Fluorocarbon mostly. Occasionally braid for a jig if the cover is a heavy vegetation.

I use my 735c mainly for frogging. It also works well for swim jigs with heavy gauge hooks. It could also pull some heavier flipping duty (1/2-3/4oz).

If you're going to step up into really heavy vegetation, the 736c will be what you want, but the 735c is going to be more versatile overall.
