I know this has been discussed but rather than search old posts I figured I'd ask... What's your favorite rod[quotweight/length/action for C-rig?

I like a MH rod with a fast tip for C-rigs. Up to 3/4 oz. If throwing 1 or 1.5 oz I prefer a Heavy rod for those. BEST C-rig rod I have found is the Dobyns 804 Carolina rig special. rod. It is a Champion, but BEST I have found. Here is a link to it.

It can handle both light and heavy weights. It is a Heavy rod with a fast tip. GREAT ROD for C rigging. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I love PT rods and do not have an SB-4. I C-rig a lot with a pg 104 because I feel like the 104.5 is too much. I like the 104 but with a 3/4 oz weight seems like I need a little more rod. Is the SB-4 something like a rod that is between the 104 and 104.5?
