i'm having trouble with my dobyns fury and i'm looking to replace it. It was my jig and worm rod. The main problem is that it's a little to weak. i got the 703c that might be the problem... Looking for rods at around a $100-130 i can go over that budget though. Have been looking at the St. Croix mojo bass mainly. anyone have experience with it? is it sensitive for bottom contact baits and what power would you recommend for 3/16oz- 1/4 oz t rigs and 3/8 jigs. Also any other rods you would recommend??

Why not just get a 704 or 734?

IMO the 703 is a treble hook rod, it is way too soft for t rigs.  It is basically a medium, mod fast.  the 4 power dobyns would be a better choice for those baits. I would recommend the 704 or 734 in the sierra line if you can afford it.  The sierra is much more crisp then the fury.

You can find a 7'3" MHF Villain 2.0 for $149.00.  Check out TT's review of the 7' MH model.  There is at least one other review from a well known site that gives the 2.0 excellent marks for sensitivity.  You won't lack power with the MH.

I own both a 703 and a 704. Completely agree that the 703 is a Med Mod fast, but disagree that it won't work for t-rigs. I use it for t-rigs, swim jigs and weightless plastics with 12-15 lb mono. What you can't do (successfully) is match it up with heavy wire hooks.

I have had nothing but issues and complaints about mine. I got 5 of them in March and have since sold 3 and kept 2 that I will beat up on the rivers. Worst fishing purchases I ever made. I fell for the cult following.

 

My favorite rod company is Fenwick. I recommend an HMG which is in your price range.

If you want to try a mojo the 7’1” mh will work well for the jigs described. It has a soft tip. If you liked to Dobyns though, I’d just up it one power. I’ve heard their customer service is great, I’d call them about eyelet.

yeah i loved the fury and seeing the replies i will just stick with it. i don't see a reason to go to the sierra. the fury is plenty sensitive and the very light weight. probably will just contact customer service thanks for your reply

Have you contacted Gary Dobyns, your rod should be under warranty.

I cant comment on the fury but have handled a few. Had a cple sierras that were nice but I felt over priced. I'd look at the shimano slx rods. Very nice sticks for the $. The mojo would be a nice choice as well or the bps carbonlite 2.0

Call Dobyns and see if they will credit you on a trade in for FR734C

I love Fenwick rods. Just be careful with the HMG as it has a Carbon blend blank and all carbon blanks from any company from my experience, can be easily weakened after even a mild but localized hit. This is the price to pay for not too expensive lightness. Baby it and it will serve you well !
