Looking into getting a punching rod looking for any info on good brands? I currently have a 7'7 irod and the eyes are always cutting my braid so I'm very displeased with the irod. what brand do you guys use?

Castaway Grass Rake. I have jigged grass for many years and only broke one. I have the old ones and two of the new ones.

Falcon Jason Christie Pitchin' stik

Extremely enjoyable to fish with this rod--at $90-$100 it's priced well also

Other Falcon rods (Bucoo line up) at the same price point for very thick vegetation

I love to flip/punch; it's hand to hand combat and nothing is more of a rush. I use 2- e6x rods, 2- gander Mt. elites, and 2- older quantum tour editions. All are great flipping rods. I do have an omen black that I find myself using more and more. My advice, my opinion only, would be to look for a flipping stick with a little bit of tip with good guides to handle 50-65lbs braid and use a high speed reel,(Tatula - R type 100xs is my favorite).

I'm the same way! I try to pick up my flipping stick every time I go fishing. I have a abu Garcia revo rocket paired with it and it handles great with the 65# sunline bx2. rod has great back bone but the eyes are constantly breaking... eventually I will have repaired all of the eyes on the rod!

Go have a custom rod built. 7'6"-8'. Look for an im6 blank. Honestly with braid or heavy fluorocarbon you do not need that sensitive of a rod. Just something strong to get the job done.

Yep! The East Texas Grass Rake is still my go to rod for this. Castaway had it before it was called punching!
