A Cranking Machine!!
This is THE rod for throwing those smaller lighter crankbaits like Bandit 200s and 300s. The soft glass tip loads perfectly and flings the bait with little to no effort! Don't let the soft tip fool you into thinking small baits is all it can do! It can handle half oz traps like a Champ! (Pun intended). After a week spent up in Lake Geneva doing nothing but ripping jerkbaits I'm sold that this rod is an absolute BEAST with jerkbaits. I threw everything from a Pointer 78 to a Staysee 90 to a Vision 110 and we did some damage!!!
Best Jerk rod
When I first got this rod several years ago I was sceptical about it's ability to land big fish right out of the package. From the first fish I was hooked on this rod and will never throw another jerk rod for vision 110 style baits. This rod will cast those bait a mile and the tip lets the bait work like it should. I will never go without this rod on the deck of the boat. biggest fish landed so far is 8.9lbs. Thanks Dobyns team for the best jerk rod on the planet!
If you throw a V-Bee, Lil Bee or similar lightweight balsa flat sided crank, shad rap, DT 6, etc., this rod is THE ROD for those baits. The tip aid in flinging the lightweight balsa baits all day. However, the backbone is enough to move fish when you lean into them. Rod also excel with the KVD 1.0, LC .5's and other light weight baits. 3/16-1/2oz can be fished on this rod. You can also work light weight poppers. However, as mentioned this rod is the best I have ever picked up for those lightweight balsa baits I throw in the spring and fall and anytime I am chunking a DT-6.
Finesse cranks and topwaters
Small crankbaits and topwaters are often hard to cast far or accurately with baitcasters, plus bass miss or shake loose treble hook lures like these. The 704CB Glass casts these finesse baits as well as any rod available, plus the soft/slow action of fiberglass allows them to take the bait deeply and keeps them hooked up once they do. Not your father's old clunky fiberglass rod, this is lightweight so you can fish it all day without effort.
The best rod ever made for a Bandit 100, 200, and 300. If you throw smaller crankbaits, this is the rod to buy. They cannot throw the hooks.
