I got the 734c in last week, and had a chance to fish it this past weekend. The rod feels in between h & mh powers, but it has plenty of backbone. I fished a 1/2oz jig on it and caught the only bite I had.

I've got it paired with a Revo ALX, and it balances just in front of the lockdown. I may try a different reel on the rod just to see if it can balance better with another ounce on it. This combo is pretty crazy light for a 7'3" jig combo.

I may have to look into some of the crank rods and see how they are. I really wish more companies used the ecsm seats.

A Powell Endurance rod was what put me off of split grip casting rods forever.

I guess the bright side of rod companies pumping out almost identical versions of the same rods(with the same cookie cutter split grips) is that it makes it easy for me to chose rods.
For nice full grip rods, I'm pretty much limited to: Megabass, Loomis, Evergreen, St. Croix & Dobyns.
Luckily those are some pretty sweet rods to be limited to :big grin:

These do look pretty cool though. Good price, the right reel seat, light weight & decent guides.

Picked up the 765 Mag MH (3/8-3oz) on sale from TW

I have a Curado i on it until I get the DC, it balances pretty well.

Took about 20 casts with it so far, pleased with it for the money as my do it all bank rod for now.
