I broke my carolina rig rod, and I need to replace it. Can anyone recommend a good replacement rod for around $125 or so? I prefer a 7' 6" rod. Thanks

I like the Bass Pro Jonny Morris CarbonLite rods. We have been using them for years and have several.


Hey--we finally caught one!

Call Dobyns Rods. They are selling their new Kaden line for $100 + $20 shipping. These rods will retail for $200/ea once officially launched to the market. They have a 7โ€™4โ€ 5 power model that should do you well

I also like a Dobyns Fury but also have a Powell Inferno I use more for c-rigging that I like. $109 at Tackle Warehouse.

I use Dobyns rods as well for my C-rig but I prefer the 4 power.
I use the 784 Extreme and the 734 Sierra. I use my 735 Extreme for 1/2oz football head jigs and 1/2 oz shaky heads.

Couldn't find any info on their website but googled it and yeah the Kaden line is named after his grandson and is being released for testing now. They have 2 models for crigs that might interest you. 7'1" Heavy and a 7'1" mag heavy.

I use an Abu Veritas 7โ€™6โ€ MH and it works good. Now I donโ€™t C-Rig much but Iโ€™m really picky about a rod being comfortable during the cast and this one works well for a $100 rod.

Sounds like I need to drive up to the new Dobyns store in Sulphur Springs. Twenty minute drive for me. Hope the Kadens are on sale.

I like the Falcon Low Rider Lizard Dragger, both I and II. Not sure if the new series has a Lizard Dragger but they are in your price range.

If you drive up and they have a returned (not sure why anyone would return one) Dobyns DC 804C that Thad mentioned on sale, I would be all over that. Thats the favorite rod I own

Unless your just dead-set on wasting $$$$$.....find a 7' med-heavy Berkley Lightning.
Under $50 and practically perfect for most C-rigging chores.
You're welcome.
