Looking for a good jig pitching rod that I could also throw a frog or a swimbait with. Looking to spend around a $100. Let me know what you've got.

I 2nd the Bargan Cave. Buy a 7 1/2 ft. rod that has the tip broken off and glue a new one on. That makes the rod a little stiffer, good for for what you want.

Get the XHeavy Diawa Heartland
$65 dollars

Great frog rod and medium swimbait rod (you can throw a hudd in a pinch, but nothing like a Crucial). It would throw baits up to about 3 ounces. The larger baits tend to make the rod kick back.
Alan, thanks for the recommendation I actually looked at one today at sportsmans. I have determined that 7'6" is just too long for me. I'm 5'8" and its too much rod for me. The rod I liked the best was the Crucial 7'2" Heavy. I think I have determined that I'm not too worried about swimbaits, just need a good flippin rod.
I second Alan's suggestion. You are welcome to come throw mine if you want to try it out.
