Dobyns Champion Randy McAbee Cranking Rod - $259.99

Dobyns Champion Randy McAbee Cranking Rod

The Dobyns Champion Rods represent the culmination of the decades of tournament experience (and success) amassed by the West's all-time leading money winner. The Champion Rods are light, yet very balanced for long days on the water. Featuring Kigan SiC guides with stainless steel frames, and ultra sensitive--yet durable--graphite, Dobyns Champion Rods are made for performance, but also made to last.

From correct orientation along the spine (spline) of the blank, to innovative hook keepers, and comfortable, balanced handles with high quality cork, no detail has been overlooked in Dobyns' pursuit of bass rod perfection.

All Dobyns Champion Rods covered by a $70 "no hassles replacement plan."

From: AJ: VA

Comments: 805 + DD 22HD = BIG BASS!!

From: Eric: NJ

Comments: the 764 is flat out the best crank bait rods I've used.  Loads up nice and is super sensitive.

Comments: I have the 805 there is not a better deep cranking rod made period try one you will love it.

From: Lance: Livingston, TX

Comments: The 805CBRM is simply awesome for deep diving crankbaits! DD22's to DT16's, this rod just out shines anything else I have ever used for deep cranking and I've yet to loose a fish on it. Loads up well and the 8ft length makes casting those divers a mile a piece of cake.

From: Chris: Austin, TX

Comments: Great rod for crankin and carolina rig.

From: Jeff: Upstate, SC

Comments: I do a lot of research before purchasing rods and looked at the 805 for awhile before purchasing. I bought it because I was in need of a deep diving crank bait rod. My previous DD crank rod was killer on my arms and I always felt as though I was fighting the pull of the diving baits. All smiles once I started throwing with this rod. The soft tip allows for effortless long casts while the backbone crushes on sweeping hook sets. As a DD crank bait rod it is an A+. The 805 also shines when fishing a  flutter spoon and excels when using a 5" money minnow rigged with a quarter oz. SB hook. I see another one of these in my future.

From: Aaron: Arkadelphia, AR

Comments: Got the 764...just as i expected... all the great reviews people give these McAbee rods are spot on. They are truly cranking rods in a class of their own. Buy one, use it, and if you're forced to throw a different cranking rod... you'll find yourself really missing  this one.

From: Vance: NC

Comments: 764 is outstanding. Great response with cranks of all sizes. It is a must have for any crank bait fisherman. Put the junk G. Loomis and St. Croix rods away and upgrade to a DOBYNS. You wont regret it.

From: Damon: Milford, IN

Comments: THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST ROD I HAVE EVER USED IN 40 YEARS..WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF ONE OF THE BEST CRANKBAIT FISHERMAN THAT I KNOW AND THE QUALITY OF DOBYNS RODS MAKES THIS ROD A MUST FOR ANY SERIOUS CRANK BAIT FISHERMAN...I USE THE 7 FT 6 IN BUT WILL PURCHASE THE 8 FT SHORTLY.....

From: Jimmy: McDonough, GA

Comments: I bought a 764 and its with out a doubt the best cranking rod i have ever used.

From: Derek: Waco, TX
