I just got one, and as stated by some fellas on here it is good for 3/8 jigs plus trailers, 3/8-1/2 oz spinnerbaits, and depending on plastic size Texas/florida rigs upto 1/2 oz. IMO anything 1/2 oz plus trailer and over go with a 5 power maybe 6. Needham can really fill you in on what's best for that he owns just about everyone in the dobyns lineup ;) 734 is a great rod for what it is.

The 734 is the most versatile rod in the lineup. Use it for jigs, Texas rigs, chatterbaits, buzzbaits, spinnerbaits and on and on.

You won't regret it

I have 2 champ 734s. Admittedly, most if not all of my jig and texas rig is done on Champ Extremes but I have used the 734 for texas rigs and felt it did fine. Personally, 3/8 tungsten weight + any plastic is the top of which I fish 4 power Dobyns. I fish 3/8 + jigs on the DX745. Anything 1/2oz + I don't like it on a 4 power. I do pitch texas rigs into brush and wood /w the DX744 and never feel under powered pulling fish out. I've done the same /w a champ 734. Never any issues. I prefer the champs

the 734c is probably the most relied on, most versatile rod out there...... but first we have to get a few house keeping questions out of the way:

 

1. what is the smallest weight you want to pitch/flip

2. what is the heaviest you think you will use

3. what type of line will you use

4. what size line will you use

5. what type of cover will you mostly fish

6. how heavy is that cover .... is it thick, sparse, open water ect

 

let see those answers and we all can get you in the right rod.

I own several, but I am FAR from an expert. I know what I like, and why I like it though.
