Dobyns 705c, 736c, 735c

Recommended Posts

I'm going to buy 2 of these 3 rods and was looking for a little advice. I need a rod for Heavy cover pitching and flipping, and one for Frogs. For mobility reasons I need a rod under 7'6" (all my rods are 7') I would really like a 706 but there is not one.. so for punching and frogging whitch rod do you think would be best the 735 or 736? Most likely I will buy the 705 and then eather the 736 or 735 or I might make the jump and get the 735 and the 736. I don't know help me!!!

For flipping and pitching I use the 735C and would recommend it to anyone. I'm much more accurate with the shorter rod. Now for a frog rod I use a 685C only because I fish in live flooded timber and can thread a needle with that thing and it has the power to drag a pig out over logs. So a 705c should work just fine for frogs.

the 735c is my most-used rod...extremely versatile and, surprisingly, has supplanted my various 7-foot MH and H rods and i wish had more of them. however, i do think it is on the light side for punching and frogging. i'd recommend getting the 735c to start with and see how that works for you before making a decision on the next one. personally, i'd go with the 735c and the 736c.

I'll second that.

If you're PUNCHING you need the 736, there's no reason to not get the stiffer rod for punching and frogging.

Heavy cover pitching and flipping the 735 would be a great rod, but for punching and frogging you'll want the 736. Grab one of each and you'll be set . Both are AWESOME rods.

I was really wanting the 6 powered rod because my current rod i use is 5 power & also rated at 1 1/2oz and when i use a 1 1/4oz punch weight and a sweet beaver and punch skirt it just loads to much, so the 2oz rating i thought would be more reassuring when working really heavy cover. All though the rod I currently use is not near as high quality as the Dobyns line. Maybe I should hold out and ask Gary him self. He is supposed to be in Korea this week working on something new and the owner of the OEM said he'd call me when Gary got here. Don't know if he will but i guess there would be no better person to ask.

+1

The 735 will work for frogging in open water or in scattered vegetation, but the 736 is ideal for frogs in thick vegetation and mats and would be the better all-around frog rod. The 736 would serve well for punching AND frogging, but for dedicated punching most prefer the 766 or 805. You'll get much more versatility with the 735 and 736.
