First Dobyns Rod 733C
I'm a die hard St Croix fan but after talking with Paul Mueller in depth I decided to try Dobyns. On Pauls recommendations and finding Dobyns Rods at Danbury Bait and Tackle I opted for the Fury 733C Medium Heavy due to the specifications of lure and line weight and the wide variety recommended techniques I can cover a lot of various fishing scenarios that are required in Connecticut. The rod handle/grip are very comfortable. The real seats are very strong. Ascetics are pleasing and the rod guides appear to be very durable. I attached a Diawa Zillion reel with 30lb Power Pro. I tied on a Ima Little Stick which is a stocky top water lure and casted it. To my surprise the 7'3" rod sailed that lure over 100 feet into the wood. Upon untangling it I headed to the river for som practice casts. Control of lure placement was excellent. I haven't had a chance to actually fish with it yet due to a knee injury but I'm hoping to soon. As of right now I have to give the 733C a big thumbs up. I do alot of winter and spring striper fishing in the Connecticut and Housatonic rivers through the winter and early spring and have a lot of faith that this rod will handle the big girls with no problem. I'll next be looking for finesse rods for my lighter lures and drop shotting and have no reason not to go right to a Dobyns.
