Lew's Inshore Speed Spool 7.1:1

A strong and versatile reel, the Lew's Inshore Speed Spool is one of my favorites. Built for inshore fishing, it's made to handle a heavy work load. Although this reel works well with monofilament and fluorocarbon, it's made to stand up to the rigors of day to day use with braided line. I'm a big fan of braid, so this reel fits right into my wheel house. It's built for strength and made to last for years.  Durability, strength and versatility make this one of my go to reels.

Duckett White Ice Pete Ponds 7'3" Heavy

I've been using the Pete Ponds 7' 3" Heavy as my frog rod for a few years now. Lightweight and strong with a quick tip, this is a fantastic frog rod. The quick tip helps make working a frog effortless. It also allows you to skip a frog under docks and bushes. The rod has a strong backbone which allows you to boat flip big ones and get them out of cover. I pair this rod with a Lew's Inshore 7.1:1 Speed Spool with 40# Sufix 832 Braid. For really thick cover like matted hydrilla, I'll step up to a heavier action rod with stronger braid. But for day to day forging, this is my go to frog rod.
