I'm looking to purchase a couple of good c rig rods and I'm looking for suggestions, please. Also would like opinions on a good deep crankbait rod that doesn't kill me to throw all day. Thanks!

804 dobyns champion or 764 dobyns champion are best rig rods I have used. Love the 804 the added length helps set the hook and the backbone handles big fish very well. BPS cranking sticks are awesome for the price 7'10"Mag heavy is supper awesome for 6-10xd the dobyns 805 and 806 are both top of the line cranking rods just depends on your budget.

one thing that i have learned is that different things work differently for different anglers. for me a long handle rod is awesome. i did a video explaining why it works for me.

The 804 did not exist when I got the 784 but I like the 784 so much that I have 3 of them.

Dobyns 806 CB is all you need for both techniques.

I loved Dobyn's cranking rods, but the handles are way too short in my opinion.

If they would extend the handle, similar to their big swimbait rods, then it would be one of the best out there...
