Finally got my first Dobyns Rods!!!!
« on: March 15, 2018, 04:07:01 PM »

With all the great reviews on Dobyns Rods I just had to Join the club and get my first Dobyns rod! Only problem is I didnít know which one t start with so I ordered 3!!!first order was for the FR705cb then the next day I just had to order the the FR734 an FR735 Lol then I had to get some new reels and decided to go with 2 new Lewís BB1  and  ordered some new lews custom speed shop knobs to match the rods turned out pretty slick when I put them on! And being a fan of the Winn handles on My lews tp1 Rods I knew Iíd like the Winn knobs as well. Donít know why Lews didnít decide to put them on all there reels! And kinda sucks that they only sell them as singles instead of pairs! But all in all I love the feel of the Winn texture knobs! Still waiting to find another reel I like might end up with another lews bb1 if I can get another good deal!!! Iím super stoked to get out on the water and give these Rods a try!!!! Thanks again to all the members on this site for sharing all there knowledge and experiences with me!

I'm sure you'll be happy. I love my FR735c. I'm a believer that you get more for your money out of a Dobyns than any other brand.

I just don't think you can go wrong on Dobyns rods and Lews reels.  Good choices  Congrats.

Congratulations. I got my first one just a few weeks back as well. Everywhere I looked people couldnít speak a bad thing about dobyns. I went in looking for a champion series but were sold out of everything that I was interested and found a Sierra 734 on sale so I snatched that up! Very excited to try it out. Just the feel and balance of these rods feel fantastic. Already debating another dobyns for a crankbait rod, one of the glass ones perhaps

You can probably do it with the 735. Its alot more stout than youd think.

Nice tackle. Dobyn's has great bang for your buck entry rods as well as high end. I fish with the Savvy rods and don't mind them at all. I like the Lew's reels as well. The BB1 now has the new centrifugal braking and its very nice.  We have been having 20mph winds here and I just cast away with no problems.  :)

Nice selection of rods and reels there. I also fish Fury Series rods and love them. I have a 705CB, 734C and a 765flip. I also just bought one of the mismarked Champion 736 Glass rods but haven't had a chance to use it yet. I am planning on using it with some of my DD Crankbaits. (DD=Double Deep). Good luck, I am sure you're gonna love em.
