Has anyone used this rod? I am looking into getting one, wondering if anyone here has any insight on it.

I don't know if that's new or if I've just never noticed it but I'd be interested to hear any reviews.

I ended up getting one. Got a pretty solid deal will let you know how it is. It is my first Dobyns.

You will like the Dobyns rods. gary makes some good stuff.  My wife and I both fish Dobyns rods for frogs. Mine is a Champion XP DC 705C and I love it.  She has a Sierra series rod.  Both fish really nice.

Theres a review of it on TackkeTour, search the rod archive. I’ve considered that rod quite a bit. 

The TT review is for the 706CB which is a much different rod.

I've had my 736CB for almost a year and a half. The rod was designed as a chatterbait rod.  There was a lot of interest in a composite rod for chatterbaits.  Because the rod is a composite rod it had the CB designation. The range of weights for the rod is pretty broad at 1/4 to 7/8 ounce and the sweet spot is 3/8 and 1/2 ounce.  The rod is very light for a composite and balanced, like all Dobyns. The rod has some serious power while employing a moderate tip.  Unlike other Dobyns CB models, this model shuts off a bit quicker, part of the reason it's a great chatterbait rod. Once I fished it the first time, I tied on a 1/2 ounce spinnerbait and it has been my go to spinnerbait rod since. I have excellent feel of the bait.  The 736CB is versatile in that it works very well for big wake baits and the jumbo squarebills.  I plan to get another this spring, it's flat fun to fish. Don't let the 6 power designation scare you.  That's a crankbait power which is different than the standard C series rods.  Hope this helps you.

Ummmm read the title of the Ops post, they’re asking for feedback on the 706CB, just like the TackleTour review.
