Great for throwing heavier weighted jigs as well as hollow body frogs.

John Cox is a well-known sight fisherman who knows all about flippin’ and pitchin’. Cox built his exclusive 7'4" Flippin' and Pitchin' Frog Rod to combine precision and power in the same application. Great for throwing heavier weighted jigs as well as hollow body frogs, this complete rod kit casts extremely well and combined with a heavy power, it truly brings the best of both worlds.

“For me, this Flippin'-Pitchin' Frog Rod is perfect. It has the power of a flippin' stick, but with the accuracy of a casting rod to give me the best benefits of both techniques. Precise and powerful, you can always find this rod in my boat.”

Key Kit Features

CFX Composite Carbon Fiber Handles

Featured in all John Cox pro kits

CFX grips begin with a proprietary carbon infused core material. It is the weight of traditional 4 lb urethane foam but has the density and strength of 7 lb. It is stronger, lighter, and more dense than any grip material available. What this means to you is the ultimate in energy transmission, far superior to cork, EVA, hypalon or other carbon fiber grips.

CFX grips have a buffed matte finish that is comfortable, easy to grip, and impervious to UV breakdown. The end result is a beautiful grip that is lighter and more sensitive than any rubber based handle, translating to more bites felt, more hook sets and more fish in front of the camera.

Why John prefers Carbon Fiber

  • Picks up soft hits better than other materials
  • Lighter and more sensitive than other handle materials
  • Comfortable & easy to grip

FUJI® ECSM Graphite Blank-Exposed Reel Seat

Enhanced Strike Sensitivity

The ECSM reel seat is more than just another exposed blank seat. Importantly, each reel seat has a blank exposed area so that your finger comes in direct contact with the blank for maximum sensitivity; but the design also allows for great stability and comfort. More than 20% lighter than FUJI's other lightweight casting reel seats, it has a 7.9 degree offset, which reduces fatigue and provides for greater comfort when palming a reel. As with other FUJI reel seats, it sports a lock tight nut system and exclusive S4™ stainless steel cushioned hoods.
