C-Rig Rod

What's everyone's favorite C-Rig rod?
I'm looking to pick a new one up, just looking for some input.

I started using a Dobyns Champion Extreme 7'4" and am very happy with it. Great throwing skinny dippers as well.

7'1" St Croix Legend Tournament Bass MH Jig'nWorm I'm 5'10" and the longer rods give me fits.

I use the St. Croix Legend Tournament 7'3'' MH Fast TBC73MHF. That rod was made for C-rigs. That length and action make it perfect for a wide range of applications. I also use it for Frog rigs and fishing heavier jigs in the rocks.

+1 - however I have yet to catch a damn fish throwing c-rig yet. But, like the man says above great for skinny dippers and I have caught a bunch of stripers with that setup on this rod and it worked great.

Looks like you have 2 great brand choices here.....kind of surprised the Loomis guys haven't chimed in. If i had to, I'm sure my 7'1" Heavy GL2 (modern version) would do a great job with them too, but I use that for jigs.

For Kasey and I, a 7'6" telescopic flippin' stick doubles real well for a C-rig rod. Works great and stores well.......Art

So you're admitting you suck at basic fishing techniques. From your login name looks like you have trouble spelling too.

My favorite bait to throw is a C-rig. I usually have 4 rigged up with varying baits, length of leader and weight.
Throwing that bait for hours on end and just working the rod can wear you out.

For that reason the Loomis NRX with a Shimano Core reel is hard to beat. SUPER light combo.
