Compared some Dobyns Furys at the store finally.

Recommended Posts

I was impressed with the feel of these rods, the Dobyns Fury. They were slower in action when compared to a St Criox Avid or Mojo. SOME but only some Fenwick ETB or Aetos seem to fall in between St Croix and Dobyns Fast actions. The dobyns also seemed lighter in power compared to a St Croix, or rather the St Criox seem heavier which seems to be well known. If I didn't already own a Champion XP 705CB, I would for sure buy the Fury 705CB crankbait rod. I finally got to handle the 733 734 and 735 just to see how the rod power felt. If I didnt have any good all around baitcasters yet I would have left with the 733 and 734 both. I like my other rods also, but I was happy to finally see some of these in person to see for myself. The balance seemed good but they had theft devices on them so I had to support the weight of that and try to feel the balance. Just an FYI since so many people here have given me opinions. In general, the dobyns rod power and action is what I would prefer and expect rod ratings to be.

Rod balance is very important.  I would have cut the ATD's off just to be sure.
