Hey guys,

I'm looking at getting either a Dobyns Sierra 693 or 703 spinning rod as an all purpose finnese rod. I have a Sierra and a Fury which I love but this will be my first dobyns spinner. My only concern is that it won't balance well with super light reels, specifically a Daiwa Tatula lt 2500. Does anyone have any experience with these rods with super light reels? Thanks in advance.

I have the 692 and it is a bit tip heavy for my liking tbh, when paired with a 7.2 ounce Diawa legalis LT.  It isn't really noticeable when fishing, but the 693 or 703 will definitely be worse.  Maybe look at the micro guide sierra for slightly better balance?  Overall it is a sensitive rod with good build quality, especially for the sale price I paid.

Then Itll probaly be even worse with the Tatula which is 6.3 ounces :(

IMO most setups will be tip heavy with that reel unless you get a very expensive rod.

Unless you grip the rod forward of the reel, it’s size will have little or no affect on balance. The preferred feel of a setup is too personal for others opinions to be very helpful in my experience. It doesn’t hurt to ask but you’ll have to be the final judge.
