Dobyns Rods Good For Bladed Jigs / Chatterbaits ?
« on: September 16, 2020, 02:07:37 AM »

What Dobyns casting rods make for good rods to throw bladed jigs / chatterbaits on ? ... Many chatterbait users prefer a more parabolic rod for , so perhaps a Fury 705CB ? Conversely there are those in the camp of maybe a Sierra 733c. or 734c. for bladed jigs / chatterbaits . Of course main line preference (braid vs. FC line) may make a difference in a rod chosen - your thoughts and experiences ?

I use two options.

DC735cb glass with 14 lb flouro in light grass and wood.

Sa734c with 30 lb braid in heavy grass.

Another option is a DC736cb glass which would fit right between the other two.

I don't have a 705cb to compare them. But I'm sure it would work great.

If you like a slower/parabolic rod, the 735/736CB glass models are the way to go.

I prefer a faster action so I don't use the CB models. I like my 704/734 for more open cover fishing, and then I jump up to a 5 power if I'm around heavy vegetation.

For me it boils down to what I'm doing with it.

If I'm making short casts, pitches or roll casts then the faster action of a 734 is a must.

If I'm fishing a flat and casting overhand and covering water then I prefer the 735 CB, it loads great and really fires a bait long distances.

I have the Sierra 734C and the DC 736CB Glass. Both are great for bladed jigs and I can cover a wide variety of weights with just those two rods.  :-*

I do use my 705CB for Chatterbaits.  The waters I fish do not have a lot of vegetation so it does just fine.  If I was fishing a lot of weeds or vegetation then I will throw the 735 just for a bit more ripping power although the 705CB if really stout in the Fury series.  I have a preference for rods that are 7' or under so the 705CB works really well for me.  The 705CB is very versatile as well and I do use it for a wide variety of baits including swimbaits.  For all these I use Braid line only.  Just can't bring myself to do Floro.

I don't throw a lot of chatterbaits, but when I do, I've been using the Kaden 745 and it seems to work really well for the technique.

Dobyns has made it possible to now order directly from their website. Keep an eye out for refurbished rods. I purchased four Champion DC's in the last two weeks. They were basically brand new because all of them still had the plastic on the cork and one still had tags on it. I only payed $620 for what would normally retail around $1000. Also don't forget if you are a Veteran or first responder you qualify for a 30% discount once you provide proof of service to them.

I never knew about a military or veteran discount!  So do you just send in a redacted copy of your DD214 or what?

Yep I emailed them a copy of my DD214 with my social and birthday blacked out. They have an email address listed on their website where you can send it to. Once they have that you will have to call them directly to order anything using the discount.

Thanks for letting me know, although it's a bit late since I've spent well over $1,500 with Gary on various Dobyns rods in the past two years.  Never knew the military thing existed....

How would a Sierra733c. do with say #40 lb. braid for a chatter bait in more open water   / lighter vegetation applications ?

I've used my Fury 733C with 30 lb. braid for those exact situations. It does well with baits up to about 3/8 oz. After that you start to notice the rod workingg a little harder. You could probably push it up to 1/2 oz. but I think at 4 power would be better suited at that weight range.

Even though the tip on the Sierra is just a tad softer than a Fury  I think you'd be fine if you don't overpower the rod.

Just my $.02
