My favorite rod. As mentioned in other reviews, be it drop shots or shaky heads- this is the perfect rod. I can't say enough about this rod, I am always excited to use it. Slowly, but surely, I am replacing all of my rods with Dobyns, and this the reason why.
The DX 702SF is a drop shot, shakey head fishing machine. Super sensitive, outstanding balance and great attention to detail in this rod. You will not be wanting to fish with anything else after you try this one!
I consider the DX702SF the perfect drop shot rod for tourney fishing. Fishing for deeper smallmouth in the Columbia River’s current requires a rod that is sensitive, yet not too light, and capable of handling heavier drop shot weights up to 3/8 and 1/2 ounce sizes. The 702 is extremely sensitive, perfectly balanced, and has the right action for dropshotting; as well as other finesse techniques. It matches up nicely with a 2500 size spinning reel and fluorocarbon line, or a braid to fluorocarbon setup. I also use this rod, and the stouter DX703, for other finesse techniques, such as flick shaking, shakey heads, weightless stick baits, and tube or grub fishing. These spinning rods will not disappoint.
Oh where to start with this rod. Amazing drop shot rod, CHECK!!!. Great shakey head rod, CHECK!!!. Ever heard of spy baiting, CHECK!!! This is truly a great finesse rod.
Ultimate drop shot rod
I live in missouri and fish one of the most powerful summertime drop shot lakes in the world (Table Rock Lake). As soon as I used this rod I could right away feel how well balanced this rod is with a 2500 series spinning reel and as soon as I hooked up with the first fish I immediately fell in love. The power and sensitivity of this rod is unsurpassed. Thanks Dobyns rods it's all I will ever use again on my drop shotting.
