Thats like asking what cranking rod do you prefer. It really depends on the individual and type of frog fishing. 7'3 is probably best all around length

7foot, 3 and 9/16th inches EXACTLY.............. and only in pistol grip with a cork handle or you will never catch a fish.

So you use different length rods depending on what frog you are throwing? Can you explain with details? All the hollow bodied frogs I throw are very similar in size and weight as are the solid bodied frogs with the kicker legs.

The crank baits that I throw vary in size quite a bit from a 1.5 square bill to a 10XD. The rod I use for the 1.5 would never be able to handle a 10XD.

I didn't realize it varies that much throwing a top water frog.

Preference is all it is. I use a 7'3" majority of the time. I can throw it all day long without ever getting fatigued. A 7'6" or bigger wears on me after several hours. With a 7'3 I can fish pads,grass,open water,bushes and skip under docks or trees. I can usually bump up to a 7'6" or 8' when throwing way up behind reeds or bushes and need the extra leverage. Fish what you're comfortable with and won't get you fatigued.

I will do it for $500. If you pay in cash, it's only $499.

Ok start building it and let me know when it is finished. If I like it I will buy it. If I don't, Im sure you can sell it since it is the "only" rod that will work to catch fish on a frog.
