Shaky Head Spinning Rod

Recommended Posts

I am looking to upgrade one of my spinning rods, to be used mostly for shaky heads and senkos.  I am probably going to get a Dobyn's, but am trying to narrow it down. 

 

I think I would be best off with a 3 power, so I am mostly stuck between the 683sf and 703sf. I know these decisions are usually personal preference, but I would like to hear if anybody has any experience with either, or if the 682sf or 702sf would be a better option.  

 

Thanks!

Which model of Dobyns you thinking about, Savvy, Champion, or Champion Extreme? That may change the answers, each line is a little different. Assuming Champion by the 682SF, so me personally I would go for the longer of the two especially if most of its us will more open water. Shorter rod if skipping docks comes into play.

Good point! The line I am looking into is their Champion rods.  I will make an edit to the OP.

I use the Dx 703sf when I throw shakey heads on a spinning rig. I use it a lot for Senkos, wacky and t-rig. I like it a lot. I'm sure either will be fine. The rod power, IMO, should be mostly based on the weights you plan on throwing. I feel like the 3 power is a versatile rod in the spinning line up.

Thanks for the info, going to keep an eye out for a Champion 703.

Great answers so far, I would echo, 703s in the Champion would cover all of my spinning rod needs personally.  I throw 1/16 oz heads with 3" trailers on the 743dx myself and while it isn't the best casting rod in the world for that light of a bait, I don't worry about 5+lb spots when I hook them on it.
