Looking at to upgrade to a decent Jig Rod... 1/4oz-3/4oz and possibly Flipping (Mainly Jig)

Only exception is I really prefer FOAM over CORK (Durability)

-CASTAWAY SKELETON V2 MAG MED HEAVY?
-DOBYNS- ANY SUGGESTIONS??? FURY or OTHER???
-DOBYNS 766 FLIP ANY GOOD? Cork but maybe worth it...

ANYWAY-THANKS YA'LL!
Sorry if this has been asked a Hundred times...

I am a Dobyins fan so my vote is either the 744 Champion XP or the 755 you have listed. That is my ultimate rod for flipping and pitching even though I am only 5'8" tall. GREAT ROD for the money. I use the rod for all my flipping and pitching. I have not tried the 765 Fury rod but it might be good too. Hope this helps. Tight lines keep safe and good luck.

No best, just what in the end you think will fit you...check out the Major Craft 7.3H MS1. We designed the rod with jig flippers in mind. Stout rod with all Fuji components. Double footed Fuji K frame guides all the way to the top. Power handle for leverage in getting those bass in the boat. Lightweight and super sensitive. We have one you can try out. Thanks

A lot of ya'll saying Falcon I really like Falcon and affordable too

I found a "Lightly used" Dobyns DX 784C marked down to $180

Not sure retail but sure feels good!

I did notice what appears to be a fairly heavy metal weight on the rod Butt?

Never seen this on a rod before-is this standard on Dobyns?

Thanks
