HI All - brand new the forum. From the post I've read it's look like there a bunch of knowledgeable and helpful guys on this board!
I'm looking to purchase my first Dobyns rod and the Fury series is in my price range. I'm looking for a spinning rod to fish for pre-spawn smallies. I typically throw 15# braid with a fluerocarbon leader. My go to jerkbaits are the LC Pointer 78, Rapala X-Rap (size 10), and sometime times a LC Staysee or Pointer 100 if they start feeding heavey. I'm looking to add the MBass Vision 110 to my arsenal this year.
I'm currently fishing a medium action rod in 6'6" lengtj with a fast action, and I'm looking for a bit of longer rod to increase my casting distance. Also, maybe a rod with a bit more give in the mid section to keep them pinned.
Given the above, what would you folks recommend? The 702 or 703? Anyone of first hand experience using either one of these rods with applications similar to mine.
Thanks in advance for any feedback,
