Denali Jadewood J2 or Dobyns Fury?

Recommended Posts

When it comes to chatterbaits, spinnerbaits, etc. I'm looking at two rods: the Dobyns Fury 7' med hvy power moderate fast action and the Denali Jadewood J2 7' med hvy power mod action. Any opinions, thoughts, etc.?

I just got the Denali Jadewood J2 for medium diving cranks(10ft-17ft) and like it for that application. Honestly though its tip heavy. I have a lighter reel (carbonlite) on it so this may play into it but even with a heavier reel it still is a tad tip heavy. I'd go Dobyns Fury for chatterbaits and spinnerbaits, just my opinion.

I own multiple J2s as well as the older Jadewood, I do not own any Dobyns rods so I can't say anything about them. J2s are a little tip heavy but I found they balance well with most Diawa reels. Also When I fish cranks, spinnerbaits and chatterbaits I fish tip down. They are sensitive and you will for sure feel bites with them. At $100 they are great rods but now that Denali is discontinuing them the current $90 and some places even $75 you can't beat that deal.

That's actually a good point, the reel I'm using for it is a Daiwa Tatula Type-R

I have the regular Tatula on mine and they still seem a little tip heavy but nothing real noticeable. I put the Tatula on a Duckett Ghost and it was the most tip heavy rod I have ever felt in my life. But all in all I think he J2 balances well for a $100 rod

I own a few Fury's and the 733 is an awesome rod for chatterbaits, as is the 705CB. I have used Jadewoods and personally like the Dobyns better even though the J2 is a good rod.

I've fished both and the Fury is a nicer feeling rod as it's not as tip heavy.  A 733, 734 would be a good chatterbait rod.

I also have had both. They are both nice rods but I like my fury a lot better.

I haven't fished the Denali, but do have a few Furys. I like them and find they balance well with the Citicas and Tournament MG'S that I have on them.  Unless I were throwing 1/4oz spinners and chatterbaits, I'd probably go with the Fury 734 instead of the 733.  I find the 734 to be better all around than the 733.
