looking for a new rod that is good for flipping 1/2 jigs with a trailer in medium/sparse cover (mainly wood).

Haven't fished with the new Expert series, but the Falcon Amistad is great. It's 7'3" which is great for shorter guys like myself. If you're taller, lots of guys use a 7'6" or longer. I'll let them comment on those

+1 on the Jason Christie pitchin stick my favorite ever so easy to use and stout enough for wood and $99

seems to be a lot of falcon recommendations. Only have one christie rod for top water so may need to increase the falcon arsenal a bit

I have a Daiwa Kage Flipping 7’6” that is great. It was around $200ish....I think. [Linked Image]

It is light, and has double footed guides over half way down the rod. This is important for fishing heavy cover and braid.

There are a lot of good rods on the market for "flipping". If you are actually going to "flip" a bait I would go with a 7ft 5inch or 7ft 6inch rod. I don't flip but I pitch quite a bit and use a 7ft, rod to 7ft 6inch rods.

I use Dobyns, Kistler, Daiwa, and Power Tackle rods for pitching.

I use a G.Loomis JWR 854 NRX. Rod is designed specifically for fishing 1/2 oz jigs. Have the same rod in IMX also. I prefer the NRX when fishing deeper, such as dragging a football jig. The sensitivity is amazing.

You think it would be good for floro 20-25 pound or just braid
