It's a toad

Dobyns fury rods info

Recommended Posts

They are fairly light like 4.5 ounces I believe. The cork is Portuguese 2A, which is really nice, but not 3A, which is the best. The reel seats are Fuji and feature a blank thru design, which is lightweight and increases sensitivity. The blanks are high modulus graphite. It will be sensitive but brittle. These are similar blanks to most other companies, being higher modulus. The blanks are 30 million modulus graphite. The guide brand is not stated, nor is the blank's brand. The guides are wrapped in Kevlar, which will make them durable. All 11 rods are fast action. They are very sensitive. You can feel the vibration of bladed lures, like spinnerbaits and chatter baits, easily. Overall it is a great rod!

These rods are very light and very well a balanced. They use their own graphite blanks not the typical 30 million modulus. Some of the rods have very unique tapers. You will find quality components and they fish closer to $200 rod instead of a rod that costs $110.  What did you want the rod to do?

what do you mean by '' own graphite blanks '' , dobyns doesn't make their own blanks , they are propriety blanks from an Korean  O.E.M

I guess I sorta misspoke,. There is another fishing website I belong to. Its owner is a personal friend of Gary Dobyns and is sponsored by him.  When members ask questions on his Dobyns forum, the owner answers their question. Frequently Gary monitors that site and personally answers the questions and it was from reading his answers that I was trying to speak from.  He often explains how the graphite composition, powers and tapers act in one rod compared to another similar rod in a higher or lower series in his rods. So yes, technically I misspoke, he does not physically manufacture the blank, but does choose material and how he wants the rods to perform. To say "they are all the same graphite or all the same taper or action" is really not accurate. That was what I meant.  If you ever held a Fury FR 702SF. FR 703C, FR 735C,  FR 705CB, and a FR 765 FLIP in your hands then you would understand there are great differences in the blanks. My personal favorite is his Sierra series.  I am waiting on a SA 693SF as we speak. 

 It"s a toad   Here is my suggestion if you are serious about a Dobyns Fury. Dobyns has two rods to look at to fill your needs. First would be a Fury FR 735C. It is a 7'3"  rod designated as Mag Heavy. It lists as good for frogging, flipping, pitching, small swimbaits, big jigs and carolina rigs.  This rod specs for baits from 1/4 to1 1/2 ounce lures. I am sure it can easily push that limit a bit beyond that so throwing a punch rig up to say ***/4 might be fine, it definitely will work baits up to the 1 1/2 it states. if you are going out to the CA Delta where they throw heavier baits than it would take two rods to do the job. One of these for flippinp frogging and one of these next rods.

The second rod that you might want to look at is their FR 765 Flip. My friend owns one of those. It is amazing how light a 7'6" 5 power flipping stick can be! It This rod handles lures from 1/4 to 2 ounces.  They suggest the following baits  Flipping Stick as primary technique and Carolina rigs,Swimbaits, Umbrella rigs and wakebaits as secondary techniques.  If you really want a frog rod that can flip and pitch as well as punch baits to 1 1/2 ounces than by all means my choice would be the FR735.

You could call out to Dobyns and ask them. I have been nothing but thrilled with their customer service. Often you can speak with Gary or his son and get your answers from them personally.

that's what all rod companies that have their blanks made in china or korea do , they work with the factory to make the blank to their specs . dobyns rods never felt that special to me , most people like that they put weight in their rod butts to balance them , i checked out their swimbait rods and was not impressed . every body likes what they like in a rod , factory rods never have been what i'm after .

I don't know if you have actually ever used this rod or are just telling people that based on blind spec readings but the dobyns 735 in the fury, sierra, savvy, or champ will absolutely not handle punching baits up to  the 1 1/2 oz range. You are overloading that rod at 1oz + plastic when punching. I've used the 735 for years. I just put a 1 1/4oz oz tungsten weight by itself on the rod and the rod was already over loaded /w just the weight. Imagine adding 1/4oz weight PLUS hook and bait.  That rod spec is TOTAL weight. Most punch baits are going to be in the 1/4o-3/8oz range. Add just a 1oz tungsten weight + flipping hook you are already either at the max or over the weigh listings. Explain to the OP how a 1 1/2oz tungsten weight + the bait of his choosing is going to work and not put an inordinate amount of unnecessary stress on his new rod. The OP is clearly unaware of these little things. Don't lead him incorrectly. 

If you want a rod to punch 1oz+ weights and frog in slop and are set on the Fury line, get the 765. I actually do own the 765 as well and it will punch 1 1/2oz no problem. 1oz + plastic is its sweet spot.  If you want to move up, get the Champ 736.
