What your budget? Are you looking for something Megabass? What size swimjig? One of my favorite swimjig/paddletail rods is the Dobyns Champion 734C.

Re: New Reel

Had the reel and rod at the lake yesterday. This reel is great for working the shoreline. If I want distance I will have to put in my blue cosugi works spool.

Re: Any info on DOBYNS XTASY?

Too rich for my blood, not being a custom build and all. I can definitely understand that. I like the idea of a custom rod, but have never committed, because I prefer a warranty where I can send a rod in pay the fee and get one back right away. That said, I'm going to have to try one of these xtasy...

Re: New Reel

Spencer it is awful hard on me knowing that you are fairly close and use lefty reels. All that cool stuff makes my wallet want to jump out. Keep posting I love it. I had a OG lefty Sol in the shop today the guy was complaining about not enough drag. Do any of you have an idea about what max drag wa...

Re: New Reel

Those are all beauties! I guess next would be an AIRD Red Tune with the spool from a T3 Air...? I don't think I'm going to get an Aird Red Tune. I have more than enough reels with the sol/alphas platform. The T3 air spool is a bit on the fragile side. If I did get another red reel, I have a red cos...

Re: What spool ?

What is your budget for this spool? There is a wide price range. The cosugi works spool is a very nice finesse spool but on the pricey side. http://japamart.com/yahoo_auction/item_yahoo_auction.php?itemcode=q217988416 http://japamart.com/yahoo_auction/item_yahoo_auction.php?itemcode=t564963722 Or yo...

Re: Dobyns Champion Extreme HP 703C

I have the Champion Extreme DX 703C not the HP version. I like to use it for 3/8 oz jigs. 1/4 oz is as low as I would go with this rod, but that's just me. I love my dobyns rods, but at 1/8 oz for jigs and t-rigs I prefer an extra fast rod like the GLoomis 802C JWR. That extra fast action gives you ...
