I hated Carolina Rigging unitl...
I use to hate Carolina Rigging until I recently got the Champion 804c. This is THE ULTIMATE Rigging Rod. Amazing the balance and feel from this rod and the amount of line you can pull when you set the hook. Think I might start Carolina Rigging a whole lot more now. It's an effective technique but without the proper equipment I choose to avoid it. Not now! I can't wait to use this rod for many other techniques like flippin and pitchin light jigs. I think this will be the perfect complete for them too. And even working small plastics with light weights. Another AWESOME Dobyns Development!
I don't throw C rigs at all. But I got this rod to throw lead head swimbaits. 1/2 oz Strike King Lead head with a 5 to 6 inch Shadilicious.. Excellent lead head rod. Great for flutter spoons and lighter A rigs. Also good for small 1 oz type swimbaits like a 5 or 6" Bull Shad..
Don't let the name fool you
Yes, it is an awesome Carolina Rig Rod... But it doesn't stop there! A-Rigs as someone else posted below is one thing this rod excels at and has quickly become my go to A-Rig rod. It is also a phenomenal chatterbait, buzzbait, and small swimbait rod!
The great thing about Dobyns rods is even though a rod is made with a specific technique in mind they always have multiple uses. This Carolina Rigging rod is also perfect for pitching lighter baits, throwing smaller swimbaits and light umbrella rigs. Multiple techniques on a single rod equals value!
Designed for carolina rigging which it excels at this rod is a great rod for a-rig fishing. If you use lighter 1/8-1/4 oz weights this rod will throw the rig a long ways and loads up perfect on the strike. I also find it a very good flipping/pitching rod for weights up to 1/2 oz, and obviously the c-rig which it was designed for. One final use I like it for is horny toad type fishing. The 8 foot length allows long casts and easy to catch up to one that hits and runs toward the boat. Another great rod from Mr. Dobyns
The perfect umbrella rig rod. The right tip to keep you from ripping the hooks loose, long handle to help you cast the rig all day without fatigue, the length to make long casts, and the backbone to hook them at the end of your casts. Great for what it was made for, a carolina rig. I've used a flutter spoon on it too. Versatile rod with length.
