    I just purchased this rod to use for A-rigs and the magdraft swimbait. I paired it with a Diawa Tatula 200 and 18lb FC Sniper. I have only had it out once so far but here are my thoughts. The cork looks good and is ascetically pleasing to the eye. It is attractive and well designed. I had the chance to use it in both wet and dry conditions. When your hands are wet, or during wet conditions, the cork seemed to have a tacky feel to it, more so than plain cork. It aided in a better grip with throwing heavier baits like a-rigs. The tackiness of it really caught my attention and made me wish I had it on more rods than just this one. Later in the day when conditions were dry it had the same feel as a normal full cork handle. While I like cork handles on rods, this was a fine compliment to my Dobyns line up. I would not hesitate to purchase a Dobyns rod with this type of handle again. As for the rod itself, I was looking for a rod for a-rigs and magdraft style swimbaits and this rod fits that bill perfectly. So far I have only thrown an A-rig on it and it handled it like a champ. With the length I am able to get better distance per cast. It has the backbone to handle these heavier baits with no problem and get a good hookset. Keep it up Dobyns!!!

    New grip looks great first of all and it looks even better when cork sealed the cork feels better as well more of a grip only worry I have is how easy it will start to chip between the light and dark cork. It’s absolutely better than the old grips but it’ll take some time to get a idea of longevity

    New grip feels & looks super nice! I threw an A-Rig yesterday for about 30 minutes & the new grip does not feel any different from my other full handle DOBYNS Champion XPs. Hopefully the new material will be sturdy & last a long time. Also the 794.5 is awesome… super easy to toss an A-Rig, lite weight & well balanced as with all my XPs. DOBYNS Team nailed it with this rod!
