Powell Inferno vs Dobyns Fury

Recommended Posts

I'm considering two new rods. I'm looking at a 7'3" Heavy. They are both $110. I've heard good stuff about both brands. I'm really looking for an opinion from someone who has tried both. But, it would also help to hear from someone who absolutely loves one of the two.

They are both terrific. I have a friend Kris that owns four Fury rods and loves their feel. I have played with them and like them as well.

I do not own an Inferno, but the most versatile rod I own, and one I love to fish a lot, is an original Powell Max. It is a a Powell Max 683 CRF. Go to Tackletour and read the review.  The owner of Powell told me the Inferno is very close to my rod. He aso said the new Max3D rods are a tad bit stiffer than my rod, they have a bit more power in the blank with about the same tip.  I do not know if Tackletour ar wired to fish has reviewed a Powell rod in a while.  Man I have held rods in both lines of Powells and most of the Dobyns and they are great rods.

The Dobyns 734 is their most versatile rod they sell in any of their lines.

In the Powell I would consider the Inferno 734 also.

Which one does your local shop carry.  Go with that one. I've held both and both feel good in the hand but I think the dobyns would get a slight advantage for me because they are carried by my local shop and the closest Powell dealer is over an hour away.  I fish with dobyns for that reason
