New setup questions

Recommended Posts

How's it going everyone. I've been fishing almost every day since I came home from school in mid may. I fished all last summer too and a little throughout the school year. Since returning home, however, I've decided that I need a little bit more sophisticated equipment to match my level of interest. I have a 7'0 Quantum spinning rod combo that I got to get into fishing which is actually a pretty decent loaner rod. My personal workhorse is a simple AG Orra Winch on a Gander Mtn Tourny rod. Its a decent little combo, or so i thought until I used my friends combos with a Quantum Smoke and Quantum EXO 100 PT (can't quite remember the rod, but they were both pretty good). He's been in the sport about as long as I have, but he's had the opportunity to fish throughout the whole year.

All that aside, basically I just want to see what you guys think about the rod/ reel I'm looking at. For the rod, I really like the Dobyns 733c in 7'3, Med/heavy fast action for soft plastics and lighter lures. As for the reel, I really like what I see with the Quantum Tour MG and the Shimano Chronarch 150 Ci4. I plan on running either 14-12lb mono or 30lb braid with a fluorocarbon leader. Any of y'alls input would be apreciated as well. Thanks!

That's a nice rod.  I'd go with the shimano.  It sounds like your going to spend some serious money and upgrade quite a bit.

Yeah, I've been saving for a couple months to really go overboard with something and I think this is it haha

Rod is fine and definitely would go with the Chronarch.  That is a serious combo.

the rod will be sweet, no doubt about it.  i may be the odd man out, but i wasn't blown away with the chronarch ci4 casting reel, not to say it was bad at all, but for the $ i thought it would be a little better honestly.  i have and have had other shimanos that were all very nice reels and performed well.

i have zero experience with that quantum so i can't offer much there.

I don't have any experience with the Chronarch, but I have a Curado that I really like. That sounds like a killer combo!
