Im looking at getting a new rod/ reel for smaller swimbaits in the 1 to 3 oz range. Just wondering what your guy's favs are. Im looking at a tranx 200 and possibly an expride A  7 3 xtra heavy?

I purchased a Dobyns fury 795. I’m far from an expert swimbait fisherman but it serves its purpose very well throwing mostly 2-3oz swimbaits and wakebaits

Depends if you want to throw hard baits with trebles or soft baits with a jig hook. You need a softer rod with the trebles and a stouter rod to drive the jig hook with the soft baits. 

 

I use a Dobyn's 795 and Curado 300E for a lot of my swimbaits.

The Dobyns swimbait rods are very popular and they make great rods in general. Okuma also makes some very nice swimbait rods that don't break the bank. I have 1 of the older model 7'6"HF Guide Select swimbait rods that I like a lot.
