Frog fishing in the slop....I'm using a heavy action rod with lots of backbone. I don't think a cranking rod will get it done but I guess it depends on how heavy the cover is.

The Crankin Stick is not designed really for flippin & pitchin or froggin. I wouldn't recommend doing much with it outside of crankbait and spinnerbait fishing. I use a BPS Tourney Special, 7'6"H for my froggin and absolutely love it. Maybe give that one a shot!
the garry loomis is a good rod, but for heavy cover you might need a little more back bone and the cranken stick has that.
This rod is fir cranks not frogs. You need the heavier action for the heavy cover

In my experience, any of them should do very nicely. It just depends on which one you WANT, really. With the BP rod costing less, that's the one I'd choose, but I come from a long line of old Scots that'd send a haint to haunt me if I spent any $$$ I didn't really need to. Any of them will do fine, but the BP will save you money.

FOR ME PERSONALLY, I USE THE 7'6'' RETRACTABLE BUTT CRANKIN STICK FOR SALTWATER ONLY, I GOT THE OLDER VERSION THOUGH, THE BLACK & WITH A LITTLE BLUE COLOR, I BELIEVE ITS THE SAME ROD NO MATTER WHAT, BUT MY OVERALL EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN GREAT, STRONG, FAIRLY LITE, SENSITIVE, DURABLE, THE BIGGEST FISH I LANDED WAS A 37 INCH HALIBUT WITH NO PROBLEMS AT ALL.
