Budget Frog Rod
« on: May 13, 2019, 10:30:48 PM »

Okay, so my current froggin' rod is an iRod Fiber Fred's Magic Stick 7'5" Heavy/Fast. It works great but it's also my heavy top water rod and my small swimbait rod as well. I'd like to get another rod that I could use for froggin' and maybe heavy jigs etc. I'm thinking either a Dobyn's Fury 735C (I can get one of their like-new refurbs for $85 shipped) 7'3" Mag Heavy/Fast, a Shimano Exage 7'2" Heavy/Fast or a St. Croix Bass-X Heavy/Fast 7'4". I'd like to keep the price at or under $100 (I like the Dobyn's and Shimano as I know I'd be getting a better rod than the money I'm paying for them)...which would you choose and why?

99.99 I just picked up a 13 fishing and I love it for my frog rod I also have the dobyns and a signature Scott Martin I use for flipping/frogs but I'm growing to like that lime green 13 fishing i have the heavy fast tip i think it's a 7'4 but that fast tip just makes it throw smaller frogs better but hey that my opinion...I have 2 bass-X rods none heavy but I love mine

The Fury 735 is an awesome choice for a frog rod.
No reason to pay any more for a frog rod.

Based on the budget provided, you can't go wrong with the Fury 735. Great budget friendly frog rod. Let us know what you end up choosing. Good luck!!

I also found an Okuma Scott Martin Signature TCS rod, 7'3" Heavy/Fast for $93 on eBay...not sure how good these are but the specs are similar to the other frog rods I'm considering and so is the price...any word on these?

Man "like-new refurbs for $85 shipped" sounds like a damn good deal. I was just looking at the same Fury rod at Academy Sunday. Seemed like a nice rod and I would have owned it, even being a like-new refurb, had said $85. Of course it would depend on the repair but if it was a like new rod yeah.

I was also messing with the Lew's Custom Lite Speed Stick Casting Rod LCLMPS - 7' 4" Magnum Pitching Rod. I hunted all over on line and found one at a pretty good deal so I ordered it. I'm going to try it. I typically use Lew's reels and I wanted to try the Winn Grip handle. It may get returned if it is junk. lo  I just didn't want to spend, or have, the $300 on the DX 745C F/H I have been wanting.  :(

I picked up a Dobyns 7'3" 735C Mag Heavy Fury Series under $100 last year from their site that someone traded in. Was in like nee condition. Great versatile rod.

Well, I just ordered the refurb Dobyn's Fury 735C for $85 shipped! I like my 734C so I'm sure I'll like this new one just as much. Thanks to all who commented on this post, appreciate it!
