Larry Nixon's Gear


  • The Dobyns Champion Casting Rods are made with the tournament angler in mind. These rods are light, yet very balanced for long days on the water.
  • The Dobyns Champion Rods are designed based on decades of tournament experience and success. Specifically engineered for Cranking applications, no detail has been overlooked in Dobyn's pursuit of bass rod perfection.
  • Designed to improve and maximize your effectiveness with whatever technique you choose. The Dobyns Championship Extreme Casting Rods series has a rod for pretty much every bass fishing technique.
  • Born for Flipping and Punching, these rods love to pull bass out of heavy grass and cover. Since the Dobyns Flipping Sticks are designed for tournament level fishing, they are made to be light and durable for long days of fishing.
  • Buttery smooth and featuring a more durable construction than before. The new line up of Dobyns Championship Spinning Rods still channel Gary Dobynís insight and decades of tournament experience.
