For those of you who use PT rods, what is the best PT rod for C-rig. I have 104s and 104.5s I feel like the 104 is a touch too soft and the 104.5 is too heavy. I think I read on here a while back that guys are using the SB4. Or is there a new one in their Power Point series that would be better? 3/4 and 1 Oz C-rigging. Thanks!

SB4 is the way to go. At least that’s what I use on the advice of Ray Hanselman.

It's what I use now and yes it works, I have landed 4 over 8lbs on it just this month with a C-Rig. I just think its a little soft so looking for something thats a touch better.

Thanks for all the replies, I will be getting an SB4 soon as the ball and chain is working.

That is what you want. You don't need a broom stick or you will loose sensitivity. It feels a little soft because it has a parabolic action which is good for throwing heavy baits and keeping pressure on them after you set the hook.

104 does not have a parabolic action

The Paragon series is moderate fast action a.k.a. parabolic action
