I’m looking for a rod to pair with a exsense dc. Current heaviest power bottom contact rod is a dobyns 744 hp. Looking for something a notch up in power from that. I’ll be using it primarily for heavy football jigs, big worms, and Carolina rigs where distance casting is a priority. Secondary uses are frogs and flipping, bonus if I can throw a 5” or 6” flutter spoon and bull shad. I’ll be adding a swimbait rod later, so not as much of a concern. Will be using braid with a leader at times, so no true micro or recoil guides. Thinking Valdiva or warhammer in destroyer series, a previous generation xx flipping special or the new aklys, bj power versitle,or helium 3 7’3” or 7’6” xh. Sensitivity and balance (although hard in a long heavy powered rod) are priorities. Open to other options as well. Destroyer series is the top end of my budget. What would you suggest?
