What is your favorite hollow body frog rod? Mainly throw 1/2-5/8 frogs.

I don't have a unique rod for the hollow bodied frogs...I use a Phenix Ultra MBX for most of my top water lures. Line is 50 lb Sufix 832.

If I'm fishing lily pads, I can use the MBX or a Falcon Amistad with 70 lb Sumari.

My favorite frog blank I have used is the ALX Zolo Toadface. For some reason, that blank just does it for me. But the rod just doesn't do it for me aesthetically/component-wise. Maybe the Perfect Pitch is the answer I have been looking for..

In case no one has mentioned it I will say the Megabass Orochi XX Perfect Pitch..... :big grin: ......the MB US Destroyer Valdivia is another great choice.

The FGS has a similar action, a lot lighter in power though imo. The FGS is a bit faster. The BJ PV is a meaty stick down in the backbone. FGS has a softer tip and loads up better with a 1/2oz frog as a result. Really really really liking this FGS. Next on the list is a Mat Bucker X4 to try.

Mark, how does the Levante PP compare to the XX PP? Have a buddy in need of a new frog rod, but doesnt quite have the XX budget.
