I need some advice. I am looking for a c-rig rod for 1/4-3/8 oz weights and a maybe a baby brush hog on the end. I have used my dc744 but it feels a little too stiff for a good connection to the bottom. I really like the dc744 for jigs - ALOT, but I thought I might find something better for this technique and weight. I have read about the 764, 784, and 804. Can you guys talk about the tips on these 3 and maybe some other options? DC734? I will primarily be fishing in less than 20' of water.

Would the dc763c fit me better for these 1/4-3/8 weight c-rigs? I cant test drive one and am concerned the 784. 804, or 764 might be a little too much? I would prefer the 784. How will it be throwing those lighter weight c-rigs? :help:

You don't specify spinning or casting, so I'll give you my opinion on those weights.  I would do a 764 spinning, as it will handle those lighter weights easily and have more than enough backbone to hook fish in deeper water.....

784c is the deal.  Plenty of length for the old ball and chain.  Good hook setting power and ample sensitivity.  Thatís my go to.

Those are pretty light weights for a Carolina Rig.

I hadnt really thought  :-* of a spinning rod for rigs, but I will check them out.

That 784 gets a ton of love for dragging. What's the lightest weight to feel on that 784? I hear of it throwing 3/4 jigs. How is that tip?
