I picked the 753c for senko applications and the 754 for all around multi purpowe.  The 755c would be my choice for a jig.  I like the longer rods for the casting and controlling fish.  I statyed out with mostly 7 footers but have gone to the longer rods.  I love my 744 for flipping and pitching.

722sf for drop shot, shakey head

724c - Good all around rod for many applications

755c - Jigs, Beaver baits, pitching to lighter cover in North east Ohio

I love my Dobyns rods

Forgot to note that I would love a high end rod but the prices scare me aware.
I have been wanting a good Champion HP spinning rod for drop shotting and finesse baits. Just havent pulled the trigger.

I voted for the ...

722SF- hey, I do use spinner rods quite a bit for lighter lures.
723 and 724, I use the 3 and 4 power rods most.

Wow,  there is a lot of posts to this thread.


My choices would be:
754c
755c
753sf


I would be interested in the higher end rods.  The difference between the champions and extremes is dramatic in some cases,  so based upon that,  I cannot imagine how nice the new line will be.

this may have been discussed, but will there be a hint or teaser at the Classic or are we thinking more Icast?

753c, 754c, 755c

I remember many moons ago when Garyís designs at Powell started the 7 foot 3 trend- then his 2nd gen Dobyns champ extremes made 7 foot 4s popular.  So Iím Thinking these new lighter proprietary blanks will make the the transition to 7 foot 5s pretty easy. Yeah, pretty excited.

Iím primarily a smallmouth fisherman and with these 3 rods it would take care of most of my fishing. 722sf for drop shot, hair jigs, small swimbaits, ned. 723sf shakey head, weightless t-rig, wacky rig, tubes, small topwater.  724c spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, top water, jigs, and t-rigs.

I went with 723c, 754c, 755c. I think that covers pretty much every bait from a weightless wacky senko up to 3/4 oz jigs. I'd love any one of these, or all 3!

Mine would have to be:

755c
754c
724c

I looked at the 765c in the DX series for a couple years before I decided I could justify yet one more Dobyns rod. Imagine my surprise when I got on their website to place my order and it was no longer there. I remember thinking that rod has to be one of their biggest sellers in the Extreme series, so maybe they are just out of stock currently due to, my assumed, high volume of this rods sales. After all, everybody has a 7'6" heavy action flippin stick in their lineup right?

I remember calling and Richard answered the phone. I inquired about why one of their best selling models in the DX series wasn't listed on their website. He very kindly explained that it wasn't there any longer because it was one of their worst sellers in the series and they dropped that particular model...

Two lessons here...1. I now know for sure that I know absolutely nothing about the rod industry! 2. When there's a Dobyns rod that you really want, don't wait two years to buy it like I did...haha

Since my heart has a big hole in it now because I never got my DX 765c, I'm sure the 755c in the new series will adequately fill the void and I will then be able to carry on with the rest of my life. In fact, just to be 100% sure that the 755c is just as good I'm sure I will need a 754c too just to be sure!

Regardless if it's a few of the new series rods or just a freebie Sierra Series rod, I can probably make room in one of my rod lockers for more of the greatest rods on earth!

On my voting I picked the 3 that would give me the most versatility for drop shot to weed busting.
