Thanks for all the input. I'd be throwing swimbaits like the savage gear glide swimmer and river2sea s-waver.

Another good rod is the Dobyns Champion 795 for larger baits, but then again I haven't tried the Dobyns Fury line so I don't know how the two rods compare to each other. It is over the $200 price point unless you find a used one.

A buddy of mine picked up a new Phenix rod the other day for swim baits. I was impressed with the rod, very light and well balanced. About $180.

There's a dobyns fury swim bait rod, I don't have one of them, but dobyns rods haven't ever let me down. I don't think you could go wrong with buying it. It should be near perfect for a-rigs as well.

For the price ($109), I've been pleased with this rod. I'm sure a more expensive rod would blow this one away, but I've thrown mid-sized swimbaits (2- 4.5 oz) all day and felt fine with it. I have the heavy action.
