Re: shrink wrap for Dobyns rods

Accu Cull Grip Saver. I have three rods done with it. It sticks, no slipping, only enlarges the grip slightly and is durable as all get out.

Re: Daiwa Steez SV vs. SS SV vs. Zillion SV TWS

I also picked up an SS SV on sale. It's been spooled with 12 Invizex and casts a 1/8 Bitzy Bug Jig a respectable distance. I understand the noise issue. My SV103 is quieter. May be it's the frame material. I like the reel very much regardless. A Steez is on my wish list, new or pre owned.

Re: What is the best compact crank for ~10ft?

Luhr Jensen 1/4 ounce Hot Lips. Don't let the non conventional bill spook you, it's a great bait.

Re: Is there such a thing as too many rods?

I think the IRS should embrace a rod stimulus tax credit. That's what brings a nation out of a financial recession.

Re: Dobyns Mike Long 784

I have the pre HP 784ML. The rod serves triple duty. Football jigs, exposed hook lighter swimbaits and lighter texas rigs pitched. All are fished on fluorocarbon. Sensitivity is very very good. I think a lot of it has to do with the balance of the rod. For a 7'8'' rod, it's pretty neutral with a Lew...

Re: Dobyns Champion 735CB Glass

Don't keeps us wondering too long. I also grabbed the 736CB and chatterbaits have not been effective but a 1/2 ounce spinnerbait has and the 736CB has been a blast to fish with. I heard the 735CB was something like a 3/4 power under the 736CB????? I'd love to hear your opinion if and when you pull t...

Normans outsourced by PRADCO

I just got an order of Normans DLN's for fall Smallies. Made in Guatamala. My favorite mid depth CB ever. I hope they perform the same as baits that were made in the USA. We shall see.

Re: What's the number one selling rod?

Try the manufactures contact us email address and ask. Are you writing a thesis for your masters? Seriously, I friend of mine was a rod designer for Lamiglas. He is with a different firm now.

Re: Prescription Sunglasses

I'm on my second pair. Have your optometrist set you up. You can only get so much wrap around from a prescription lens. They beat the snot out of wearing Cacoons or Fitovers. Be ready to drop at least 4 bills or more.

Re: Dobyns Fury 765Flip Thoughts?

I personally do not own the Fury but two guys I fish with do and have handled theirs. Both flip/punch with braid and have used 1 oz. primarily. The rod is rated to 2 oz. but that would be pushing it. Running 1.5 oz. in a pinch? That would be doable. I have the Champion 765 Flip and two DX795's and b...

Re: Dobyns HP 743C impressions

Nice review. I've fished my HP743 numerous times now and have been extremely happy with it. The two applications have been a 5 and 6 inch Senko and 1/4 to 7/16 once finesse jigs pitched and short cast. The HP really is a different animal from the previous DX model. The Toray material is much crisper...

Re: Dobyns Fury 734, 735, 765

735 will be a close as you can get with that range of baits. I have one and like it.
