Just received my Dobyns Sierra STP 741SF trout/panfish model.
I was hoping it would not be too “whippy” in action/power, that’s why I choose the 1 power over the 0 power. It’s not! It has a nice soft tip (diameter of first 12″ or so of tip is thin diameter! But Dobyns states that that tip section is actually solid graphite, not hollow, I hope so!) The rods power starts about 1/3 of the way down. “Somewhat” moderate in that 1/3 section, but not really, and it goes into a faster action from there down. I think it is going to be an awesome rod for baits from 1/16-1/8 oz. This rod would really make a great light hair jig rod, fir jigs up to 1/8 oz. I can’t wait to fish it. Mainly got it for fishing for crappie, casting, and slip float, but I can see me trying this out with lighter hair jigs, float’n’jig, and other light stuff that you need a longer rod for casting distance. This is going to be a FUN rod to fish!

Fantastic rod!! So versatile for light line finesse applications. Was throwing a 1/16oz jig head with a 3″ gulp minnow catching crappie, bluegill, rock bass, pike, perch and largemouth bass. Paired with a 2500 size Shimano reel and 8lb braid this rod launched the bait. It’s super sensitive, light tip gets into decent backbone when considering it’s a panfish rod and because it’s fairly parabolic the fish stay pinned. Can’t say enough good things about the 741!!
