I think he is asking for actual opinions on rods for flipping, not boat flipping fish

Power Tackle, Loomis and Dobyns are 3 of the best in my opinion

As long as you get a good northfork blank or rainshadow. I'm experimenting with a few bushido blanks.

I lucked out and found an American Rodsmith Denny Brauer Perfect Flipping stick on sale. I think its original price was $250 or more and got it for like $80. I love the recoil guides on it and it is one beast of a rod.

I enjoy my Fitzgerald flipping/light pitching sticks. They are tip heavy but I don't mind.

Power Tacklke 104.5 They have 2 handle types no ratz and paragon. Find the one that feels best and flip them in the boat.

Ever see those red sores on the side of bass?

That's where the slime coat has been removed. Every time you boat flip a fish, you're wiping that slime coat off on the carpet of your boat.

Every good Indian owned a premium bow. That premium bow would be the Power Tackle PG 104.

Powetackle pg 104.5 or the new series ( I dont remember the name) is pretty incredible. They handle big fish with ease and take a beating.
