Dobyns 805 Flip/punch Reviews?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has used the Dobyns 805 flip/punch and if you could give me any insight about the rod. I prefer a more parabolic action like St.Croix offers but I refuse to buy any of the new legend tournaments because the reel seat and handles are hideous! I've heard that Dobyns delivers a very similar action in a more attractive/ergonomic package.

I plan to pair it with either a revo stx or curado e7 with 80lb suffix braid, it'll be my main rod for punching and flipping moderate to heavy cover with 5/8-1 1/4 jigs or punch rigs.

I usually wouldn't rely on someone else' opinion but there isn't a retailer in my area that has the Dobyns 805 flip/punch in stock.
