Yes. I use both the Dobyns 735 and 736. I prefer the Boom Boom version for really heavy cover but don't have a problem working the frog in open water with either of them.

Diawa Steez SVF XBD. It’s supposedly the best. I sold mine and really like my Falcon Lizard Dragger better.

I've been using the Lew's Custom Speed Stick Lite Magnum Grass rod and really like it.

I just recently started using a 13Fishing Muse Black 7'4" Heavy Fast and its surprisingly good as a frog rod. I had been using it more as a deep water jig/c-rig rod but I really like the action for a frog. In cover or open water.

I’ve been using the Falcon Cara Christie frog rod for a long time. (Now called the Eye Crosser) Perfect weight, strength, and length. I’ve caught lots of 5 to 8 pound fish on it.

I just got an Eye Crosser, it handles frogs beautifully. I'm short so the shorter length helps me walk them more comfortably than the typical 7'3" frog rods. It's basically a 4 inch shorter Amistad.
