Finally Treated Myself!!

Recommended Posts

Most yall know, I fish mostly Powell rods. Not too loyal just best bang for my buck and I'm used to them...and Lews reels same deal...

Well, I've save most of my per diem money from 2013 and decided to spend a little bit on the finer things.

Just ordered a Dobyns Champ Xtreme 704c and Core 100mg. Its gonna be a jig rod.

I wanted a NRX, but at 239, I had to go for the Dobyns.

Super excited! Can't wait for them to get here! If it is good as they say it is, ... I still have a lot left ovr.

I ordered them both from the same place.

I have 3 Lews Team pro reels and several tournament pros. Now I get a real cpmparsion between the core and the Lews team reel.. I'm pretty sure the Core is gonna be everything guys say it is...

Pretty darn stoked. Wife is tired of me yapping about it

Congrats! you'll gonna love that combo..

 

I got the same combo but with the first gen DX704.  Surprisingly the CORE 100 Mg holds up pretty well on saltwater surf fishing.

I have the 5 power with the same reel as my pitching rod. The 239 was a killer price too. You will love that set up.

 That's great, we all should spent a little on something we want every now and then, I hope you enjoy the set up for a long time. I do kinda wish you would have bought a better rod though, you said you use Powell rods and to me the dobyns is just a Powell Rod with more bling and a bigger price. I guess that's why their are so many different rod company's though, we all feel differently about them and I'm just not a dobyns fan.

 Friend, I do not think I was pooping on any ones party. I'm happy he bought what he wants to buy with HIS money that he worked for. Hope he catches a lot of nice fish with it too. Now with that being said if you don't agree that the Dobyn's Rods are just over priced blinged out Powell Rods you are kidding yourself and just because they are, that still does not mean they are not nice rods because they are. I just stated that you are paying a larger price for what is pretty much a blinged out Powell Rod, The thing is, I had forgot that Dobyn's has such a blind bandwagon fan base, so please, excuse me, I'll move along now.
