Thinking About Ordering A Few Dobyns

Recommended Posts

ok.....found some dobyns I can get for a good price and want to know "how" I should use each rod......or at least your opinion if I am thinking

correctly on how to use each rod. I just started fishing this summer but want quality gear for the long haul, and want to be "correct" when I get it.

Champion series:

733cfh...... all my spinnerbaits 3/8 oz, maybe even a few 1/2oz

734cfh.....texas rig and soft plastics in general I would not think more than 3/8oz + plastic

765 Flip(should I get the 736 instead?)..... all my flipping and pitching/ jigs/creatures ....as I do not usally throw more than 1/2oz jigs+trailer....most times it is a 3/8oz jig+trailer

does this sound right? is there anything I am wrong on or should change?......... what else could you use these for ?

thanks

Listed techniques for the 733 and 734 sound about right. I use a 733 for senkos, spinnerbaits, <3/8oz jigs, small t-rigs, lipless cranks and a lot of other baits. The 733 is actually a great moving bait rod but I prefer something a little faster for jigs.

I use my 734c primarily for jigs (1/2oz) and it's great. You could go up to 3/4oz but I feel the rod is a little too overloaded with 3/4oz jig + trailer. It also fishes paddletails very well and I will use it for senkos, spooks, and about any other bait when needed. It's a great rod and the best general purpose stick in the Savvy/Champion lineup IMO.

thanks breezy.......

nice to know the 733 and 734 can interchange so much..........I figured the 733 would be better for spooks?

I have a few 734 and 733s, they are very versatile rods. I use the savy for my moving baits and champion for precision type baits. the 733 is more med-med heavy and the 734 is med heav-heavy. for flipping i have both the 764 and 765 . i pick up the 764 for 90% of my flipping around here in ct i dont flip matts all that much more pads and milfoil, but i havent fished anything yet i coundnt use the 764.
