Hey Guys
Looking to replace my rod for my C-rig set up.
What are some suggestions that are $150/less

Thanks-

if you do not need it soon I would save a little longer to get a shimano zodias or a falcon expert/cara personally I like a 7’4-7’6 for a crig.

I use a Dobyns Fury 735 and it gets the job done for me. Fits your price point as well.

Budget set up is a Falcon Lowrider Carolina rig II
Sweet set up is a G.Loomis BCR 875 GLX

If they both got broke/stolen today, I'd replace with a Zodias. IMHO about the best bang for the buck out there today. YMMV.

I bought the Falcon Lowrider Lizard Dragger for C rig. But I wound up feeling like it was struggling with the weight of the rig, so I stepped it up to a Falcon Lowrider Heavy Cover Jig and REALLY like the way it casts the 1+ ounce rigs and the sensitivity is pretty good with braid main line. $129 regular price and you can find them on sale from time to time.

I know you said around $150...but this rod has been very kind to me:

No matter what rod you buy, most definitely get the HEAVY action.

Second the ALX Zolo Dragger. It's about $65 more than your budget though. Not to start a debate on whether the reel or the rod is more important but with crigging, I think the rod might be slightly more important since you're not casting/reeling near as much. Maybe save a few $$ on the reel and apply it towards the rod?

Third on the ALX dragger. I have a longer C rig specific rod, but I used my dragger in a pinch a month ago and that thing casted a C rigged fluke a mile paired with a Lews Tournament Pro reel

I like the Dobyns Sierra in a 734. Also a great rod for throwing buzz baits.

Heavy is a relative term when you are talking about all the rod brands out there. Some are as stiff as a broom handle and you won't get the distance out of it like you would on a rod with some tip action to it.

100%. Put your hands on whatever rod you decide on before you buy it.
