Dobyn's Rod Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I heard that Dobyns rods are a little on the softer side. A Heavy action is close to a medium heavy. Anyone have any experience with them to confirm that?

I heard the opposite, I have a med-heavy that is my understanding runs more heavy but I never fished  a heavy to compare it to can't really say.   

 

I am sure one of the experts here will weigh-in.

Action refers to bend of the blank

Power is the weight rating rod can handle

Reviewers can confuse you by using these terms interchangeably.

Most manufacturers power ratings are close to accurate to the listed lure weight. Figure out what weight you wikl use rod for and go from there.

In their non flipping and cranking models, yes their heavy (5 power) is closer to what one would consider a medium heavy. The 735 in all lines is a heavy power rod. The dx 745 is also heavy. Their line up is hard to gauge. Some fish spot on and some fish a power less or 1/2 power less. A specific model is easier to answer.

For dobyn's all of their 4 power rods (704, 734, etc.) are rated heavy by Dobyn's but these are on the softer side and fish like most MH's.

With Dobyns buy 1 power higher.

3 power = medium

4 power = medium heavy

I have a DX745, it's a "Mag Heavy" it's more of a Medium Heavy in my opinion. But my Savvy 703 is on the light side of medium. The 734 is a good choice for those applications.
