Customer Reviews

Comments: Dobyns Rods are the best. I have tried many rods over the years and now own 4 Dobyns rods. I have a DX 701SF and DX 703SF and a Champion 705SF and 762SF. I only fish with spinning gear and these rods make it so easy to fish with. Their sensitivity is second to none. They are well made and the features in their Extreme series are really well done. I have tried rods almost twice as much as Dobyns and these rods are just as good. Give them a try and you won't be sorry.

Comments: Just WOW! I thought I have been using a well built, sensitive, balanced rod. After reading and hearing about Dobyns Rods for a while I finally decided to take the plunge and try one for myself. I'm sold. If you haven't had the pleasure of using a Dobyns or you are trying to decide if a Dobyns rod is right for you, go ahead and order one. Just be ready to switch all your rods to Dobyns because they do feel that much better.

Comments: If you are looking for the ultimate sensitivity for your drop shot & senko rod then look no further. DX702SF (drop shot): With this rod, I feel even the smallest bite. DX743SF (senko): I love the sensitivity and the extra length for longer cast.

From: Chris: QC, Canada 2/18/15

Comments: For spinning tackle, all you need is a DX 702 and a DX 703 and you are set , these are the most sensitive , light, well balanced rods I have ever held.

From: Ed: MN 6/3/14

Comments: I have the Dobyns Extreme 764SF and also the Champion 705SF and 765SF and after using for some time now find these are the best spinning rods I have ever owned. The Extreme is very sensitive and light with power and the Champions have the power to get big fish out of the heavy stuff. The only spinning rods I own now are Dobyns! Wish they made the Extreme in the heavy power spinning rods too.

From: Bob: Modesto, Ca. USA

Comments: The best spinning rods out there right now! Super light and well balanced. I love my DX 764. You will swear that you are not fishing a 7"6" rod when you pick it up.

From: Pete: West Seneca, NY

Comments: Only thing negative about these split grips are the hook hangers being below the cork on the handle. In time this will tear up the cork. Please change this Gary. Other than that, PERFECTION

From: Steve: SC

Comments: 702 is phenomenal, extremely sensitive, very versatile, balances well, very light, tangle free guides are great and handle braid well, guides are not micro but smaller than a lot of traditional spinning rods(which is great). If you are like me and don't like to fish spinning gear unless you have to or finesse is the only way to get a bite, This rod will have you rethinking spinning gear and you will find yourself becoming addicted to these dce rods. 2 wt rod is surprisingly powerful and I have had no problem pulling in large fish.

From: Adam: G.B., CA

Comments: These are quality all the way ,well built, sensitive & balanced. Like the cork on the handles, the smooth lock ring with no treads! GARY DOBYNS is a QUALITY KINDA GUY! KEEP IT UP
