Couple of Rods to compare

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at picking up a new rod for flipping and pitching. Looking at the Fenwick HMG, Cabelas Tournament ZX or the Dobyns Fury. Obviously looking in the $100 range. 

 

Other rod necessity is a deep crankin stick. Looking at the *** *** Crankbait rod. Any reviews on this stick?

I am a big fan of Dobyns rods. I personally fish a Champion XP rod and my wife fishes a Sierra rod.

Both are outside your budget, but both fish awesome.

 

My friend Ed played with our Dobyns rods and has since sold off many of his old rods. Her is currently fishing 4 Dobyns Fury series rods and loves them.

I do not think you can do better than a Dobyns Fr 765 Flip in that price range.  The FR 735 is another option as well.  Kris fishes both the 765, the 735c, the 705CB and a FR 703C spinning rod. All four are well made, balance well and fish great. 

You will find plenty of fans of the others on this board.

I would match that up with an 8-1 Tatula CT for flipping and pitching.

I use the Abu Garcias Veritas, good rod for under 100.  I would use any of them really.  I would get a 7' or 7'6" MH.  I don't feel that you need a super sensitive rod as most of the action is up close.  I would suggest getting a high speed reel to go with it.  

 

I did just pick up a rod at Academy that is pretty nice.  it is there Ethos line.  it is 6'10" and it is doing good so far.  It is a 60.00 rod that i got on clearance for 15.00   :-)

 

Just my opinion.
