What’s everyone using for a football jig rod? Looking for good sensitivity

Unless you mean finesse sized jigs I use a Dobyns Champion 735 or a Falcon Amistad.

Dobyns 784 is hard to beat. I had a 7’4” falcon cara mcclelland rod that was sweet too.

7.3H MS1....Double footed Fuji K guides to the top is hard to beat. This rod is overbuilt for the price range.

Bought this rod for football jigs. I does a good job for that. Use it for almost anything. Most versatile rod I've ever owned.

I have the Falcon McClelland Cara ST Amistad. It is a really good rod. But, for a fraction of the cost, I usually use my academy H2O Ethos Nano 7'3" Heavy. It is almost as sensitive, has the same guides and same reel seat. It's slightly reduced sensitivity is probably due to the painted blank. Both feel identical when you are using them. Also....you can buy four of the Ethos rods for the price of the Cara ST.
