Chris Mata says:

Cool video I’ve been looking at the shimano exage and castaway taranis. I’m looking for a heavy rod for heavy jigs frogging and flipping and pitching. I might go with the exage

You’re missing the Fenwick HMG

Isaac Pelletier says:

I once went to a huge tackle shop just to hold as many $100 rods as I could. I was very impressed by the phenix rods, but none could hold a candle to the Dobyn’s fury in terms of weight/balance. I now have three of them. The 733 is my favorite model. The thing is super lightweight. Definitely check those out if you can! Also…I just did a review of my Shimano Exage.

I fish jigs, senkos, and spinner baits. Should i get a exage 7ft 2 medium heavy?
