What Rod do you guys think is best for fishing an A-rig? Also is an A-rig/TN rig allowed in the CFF tournaments? I don't fish them I was just wondering. I hate throwing it but I've been told that its all about the rod, so I thought I might start trying it again.

i use a 7 1/2 or 8' flipping stick, the longer rod and handle make it easier to toss. and yes they are allowed in CFF tourneys

You guys are crazy using flipping sticks to throw A-rigs. You don’t need that heavy of a rod to throw a rig. I throw mine on my deep cranking rod and have never had a single issue with losing fish and I can throw it all day without wearing me out. Now if you are throwing 3/4 or 1 ounce heads, which I don’t know why you would, I can see stepping up to a heavier rod but a flipping stick just isn’t the right rod to be throwing a rig on. Just my 2 cents...

I'm picking up a Powell Endurance 795cf tomorrow for a new rig/swimbait rod. That and the Dobyns 795sb has been my favorites is far.

Can you clarify what deep cranking rod you use? This is interesting.

Normal A-rig setup is a Megabass Orochi XX Launcher, which is also my deep cranking rod. I also have/use a Dobyns 795 SB if I am throwing heavier heads and it also doubles as my medium weight swimbait rod. The more I use the 795 the more I like it. You can pick one up in the Dobyns Fury line up for just over 100.00.

Big Rods, heavy line, sounds like I need to go to the gym more often to fish these.

Go to fish tales and get you a joe burns rig rod best rod I’ve used for one. No matter what rod you use it’s going to be different than a regular style bait
