Dobyns 795sb Vs Veritas 7' 11" XH Winch

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a Umbrella/ Oversize Deep cranking rod (10xd). I've read other threads that suggest it is difficult to accomplish both with one rod, but I would like to get a setup to get my foot in the door in both areas and then possibly branch out into two separate setups. I have narrowed it down to the Dobyns 795sb and the Abu Veritas 7' 11" XH Winch, both are in my price point.

 

I like the longer handle on the Dobyns but I also like the moderate action of the Veritas.

 

If you had to choose one of the two which would you choose? If neither why?

You're looking at 2 different rods for these applications. I have the Fury 795SB and it's definitely a swimbait rod. It's got a much stiffer tip than I would want for throwing big cranks. However, I think it's great for throwing large, heavy swimbaits like a big Huddleston, Gantarel, or the likes of. 

 

The Veritas model you speak of looks to be a cranking rod rated to 2.5 ounces, which the 10xd pushes the limits of. I suppose this rod would work for the 10xd. I use my Dobyns Champion 806CB for this bait and other oversized squarebills. However, a heavy umbrella rig or big swimbait would be too much for this rod. 

 

If you're on a budget and can only afford one rod, I would ask myself which rod will I use more? If you can afford both, I would be buying both and using each for its intended purpose.

I guess I would most likely use the umbrella rig the most. But, I wanted something that could at least handle the other application in a interim basis. Any suggestions for < 150$

I've never used the A rig, so I'm not familiar with how heavy they are. I've heard of guys throwing upwards of 8-10oz. A-Rigs, which would really require a specialty rod. How heavy of a rig are you going to be throwing?

I've been known to throw 10xds on my SC Premier Muskie rod. But muskie are a much different game. Buy either the Fury or an D805/6cb first, then buy the other.
