In a way.... the title is right.

 Stopped by my local Academy after word to see what they had left in the Boom Boom series....

     Well to say the least...... I picked up 2 Boom Boom 743SF's for $38 EACH!!!!!

They also had a 803CB but I let another guy have it after I seen what the price was.  I have 1 already so no need for another.


Go to your Academy's.... grab whatever Boom Boom rods you find and scan them and buy them... then run home and hide them from the wife!!!



Arsenal is now at
Colt 702SF
Fury 735C, 735C,734C
Kaden 745
Boom Boom 803CB, 743 SF, 743SF

What a find!!

I was just talking to a friend today about how you can't find them anymore and he said that lots of fakebook pages are full of guys who have like 25 of them after driving to all the stores they could and buying em all! I haven't seen one in my local store in weeks and it was still at $155.

The tag will say 155 but pass it under the scanner at the end of an isle.  When I scanned the 803 today and seen it was $38 I went put it back. Grabbed 2 743SF's.  Talked to a guy that was lookin for a swimbait rod. Told him bout the Dobyns and showed him the price drop. He couldnt hold it tight enough lol.


 Im not much into Spinning rods but will be a definite upgrade from the Colt 702SF I was using before. So I took the Diawa Legalis off the colt and put it on the Boom Boom.


 I want to trade the other 743 for the Boom Boom frog rod or the Flippin stick... or another Kaden. So if ya interested. Ill meet ya halfway on I49 one day :)

Man!  I would have lived off Ramen for a month if I could've gotten an 803 for $38 bucks.

Well, we'd have to figure it out, but I got two of the Frog Rods by mistake... Ordered Flippin' poles.

The worst part is shipping.  Hoping it gets to desired location and in no more than 1 piece lol.     Wish I would have kept my tube from my last rod bought from Dobyns.  Pvc tybe.. lots of bubble wrap and foam blocks may be the answer.

Hmmm i would have thought all the Academy's would be in the same page with the price. Might be on a store to store basis.  That blows.
