Hello Denham Bruce - Here is another MHX Rod Blank to consider that is listed in the Elite Pro Series.

Very light weight in the hand, plenty of mid and butt power, super sensitive and durable. It is

Hello Curtis - Here are a coupld of links to a couple of MHX Rod Blanks that are proven for frog fishing. This link to a 7' - - and a link for a 7'-3" - - The 7"-3" MB874-MHX is just a bit more powerful in the lower section of the rod blank than the 7' model. The MB874-MHX is better if you are fishing around really heavy vegetation or cover. Thank You

Many, many years ago before they were the branded "Crankbait Blanks", we used popping rod blanks for cranking rods. The original, true to from popping blank is generally a blank that would have a softer mid and tip flex than a mag bass, that has a powerful butt and mid section with a fast tip. Some finesse bass anglers also like the popping blanks and as Steve Gardner mention, top wa

This is something that anglers debate about as much as to spine or not. There are anglers that prefer the softer tip flex of a mod-fast to moderate rod blank and many anglers prefer a fast action tip flex. Per the weight of the lure, here are a couple of softer tip flex rod blank suggestions - & - Then for fast tip type rod blanks - & - Personally I really like the MB843-MHX,

Besides being involved in the custom rod building market, I keep up with the trends in the completed rod market as well. I will assure you that completed rod manufacturers use the term - "Titanium" very loosely. I see so many of them in the completed rod market, when boosting their advertising and marketing ploys, using Titanium to describe and help sell their rods, when the guides ar

Hello Benjie -- I pulled both the L905-MHX and SW70M-MHX from the bins and checked the tip flex and power for both rod blanks. There is a slight difference in the two. If you want something that is really going to provide a overall stiffer tip flex and more butt power, the SW70MH-MHX is just that. The L844-MHX and L905-MHX blanks that you have already chosen are proven winners as well. We App
