Will it be muddy?

Hey Liphunter, I like to throw my a-rigs with a 7'3" medium heavy to heavy weight Boyd Duckett rod.



I’ve tried most of my rods on Arigs as I have been using them for at least 10 years.  I throw my version of a flash mob with 1/8 oz heads and either swim baits or flukes on them with 50# braid.  We used to make the forms from electric fencing wire before we could get good forms.  I have settled on 2 rods and am trying out a third one tomorrow.  Both of my regular rods came from Ark Rods in Harrison.  One is completely unbranded and for sure is a 7’ heavy.  The other one is a B & R Outlaw rod that was sold to me as being mislabeled.  It shows as a mh but it seems like a heavy to me.  I can’t use anything less than a 7’ rod on those things.  

I have also bought Shimano Curado 5:1 reels to match up with them.  Being quite old and decrepit I can only throw them for about 5 hours before I am worn slick.  I couldn’t last that long before I had the 5:1 reels.
