Help Please...dobyns Savvy Questions

Recommended Posts

Thanks to all who helped me out earlier with my Dobyns questions. After using my 702SF, I have come to feel that the action is a bit light for my tubing needs. It feels nice throwing topwaters, though. MY QUESTION is: am I overreacting to the ML/fast rod AND should I be using this action with braid to give me a built-in shock absorber?

I may buy another Savvy with the sales this week and I am thinking of going to the 703SF since I need a bit more (M) action for draggng tubes which is a common way of fishing up here.

Any input will help me.

thanks

Tim J

i have the 703sf and LOVE it...going to get another from BTD with the sale going on! I fish flukes, senkos, finesse worms,shakey head, drop shot etc...feels great! It has a good back bone with a fast tip.

Not sure what the ML feels like in the savvy series as i was torn between the 2 but glad i got the med action!

Sale Price: $127.99 @ BTD

I also think you'd really like the 703. Would be nice to take advantage of the sale and have two great spin setups!

thanks guys. I went with the 703. I will use the 702 for a lot of apps but if the 703 is more like what I use now, I will be very happy. can't beat the price.

btw, the 702 does not have a problem with hooksets or moving a fish. it's just that the constant bottom contact of tube dragging really moves the rod tip a LOT.
