Does It Exsist?

Recommended Posts

Looking to fill a spot with a rod, and having a hard time deciding what fits the bill, Dobyns 745dx or 795 flip, Original plan was to pick up a BCR894 but that opputinity is gone now.

 

The rod would mainly be used for flipping/pitching 3/8oz up to 3/4 jigs/ Texas rigs into medium to heavy cover. Grass,pads, fallen timber and the odd submurged trees. But also be used for punching matts/thicker grass the odd time 1oz- 1/2oz. I have heard of guys punching with the 795, but not sure if it is cut out to do so. last but not least it has been mentioned to me that the 795 loves braid, 745 better suied using fluro?

 

Any thought, suggestions?

fixed! Yes Dobyns or the next best thing to a GLX. I'm not a fan of the new GLX's so i want to go a different route. Dobyns DX series seems to fit the bill.

I do not own either, but have read a lot about each rod. For the purposes your looking for I'd say the 795 would be a better pick, especially if your doing any punching. The extra length of the 795 will give you added leverage for getting those fish out of the heavy cover. Also it will give you a bit more range for flipping since the rods longer. 

 

I'm sure someone with more experience with each rod will chime in shortly

Look at DX784CML this is a 7'8" 4 power rod that will do everything you want.

Also give Gary a call and discuss this with him. Dobyn's usually has a few Gen 2 rods at a great price.

I don't know about the 784ML I have read that it has a much softer tip then the 785 flip, 784 being better suited for deep water jigging.

Just picked up a champ 766 flip a week ago and used it once and absolutely love it for punching and pitching, tons of backbone with great sensitivity

It's suited for casting jigs up to 1 oz a Long distance, horizontal jigging. The 785 will not cast worms or jigs as well as the 784, both rods are very strong and handle any LMB.

If you want something in between with state of the art blank, guides etc., then a custom rod is the answer.

ALX makes my rods for this reason, give Alex a call or call Gary and ask him what he thinks! You are the only one who can make that decision. ALX has a free rod return policy if you are not satisfied and I'am sure Gary will do the same, if you contact him. This allows you to try out the rod, the only risk is paying the return shipping cost. Not familiar with Delaware Valley Tackle Rods a site sponsor offers.
