Irod genesis ll jr swimbait and dobyns fury 795

Recommended Posts

Hey guys just looking for some comparisons of these 2 rods.  Is it one of those things where you can't go wrong with either one?

Another couple  rods you might look into for swimbaits is the Phenix inshore 7'7 ML or Abu Garcia volatile 7'9 M. Haven't owned either of the others..

What size baits are you looking to throw?

Dobyn's Fury 795SB is 1/2 the price of the Chsmp 795SB, not familiar with the new Fury line of rods. Can't imagine it's the same quality of the Irod.

I'm gonna be throwing s waver 168, hudd 68, 9" slammers.   Stuff like that. I know the fury doesn't compare against the champion  but I'm wondering how the fury and irod jr swimbait  rod compare against each other

Just reread your last sentence WRB sorry but yea I'm leaning more towards the irod.

For me the deal-breaker is the handle length. I like my swimbait rod's handle to be no longer than 17". 16" is perfect for me. Some have 22" handles and I find them unwieldy and stupidly long.

Other than handle length any swimbait rod within the rated lure weights will suffice.

I throw baits like Gantarels, Chibitarels, 6"-8" line thrus, real trout.. 1.5oz to 3 oz.

Both are great rods for the money IMO. I would look at the type of reel seat and type of hook keeper that's on each they're very different. Both rods are going to balance fairly well with a reel on it and both blanks are good quality. Good luck!

I can't comment on the Irod, but I did buy the Fury 795 on Black Friday. I haven't been able to use it, but it definitely seems like a quality rod for $110 retail. Wish I could help more, but I've read that the frog bite usually isn't too good whenever there's ice on the water.

You gotta drill a hole in the ice and dead stick the frog this time of year. :D

I've fished both short term. The fury is a good rod for the price point, nothing fancy, innovative or overly impressive. I've also fished iRods and have been dying to buy my own since. Personal preference for me is with the iRods. You can't really go wrong either way though.

I have owned the IROD Swimbait Jr and really liked it. It will throw the baits you mentioned with no problem.  The 795 Fury is on it's way to me and my plan is to throw glides on it 7 inch and 6 inch, Triple Trout, Roman Made, etc..all in the 2-3 oz range. I am fairly confident I made a great choice. I can't wait to get it.  Good luck with your decision!  I have a feeling I'll have more than one of these Fury's before it's all said and done but I could be wrong. We shall see on Monday!
