Re: Dobyns Xtasy power question

Thanks, that's what I was leaning towards. Care to give your opinion on the 753 in terms of performance?

Performance was great. Threw a bunch of stuff on it from topwater to bottom cotact to 3/8 ounce. Very crisp and light feeling in hand.

Re: Dobyns Xtasy power question

I've fished a buddy's 753c and I think you'll want at least a 4 power if you're going to fish 1/2 ounce in deep water.

Re: Expride 7' light spinning

I've been fishing this rod for the past season and it's been great. Very light and sensitive. Great for 1/4 and under for my tastes and shines with 1/8 - 3/16 ounce weights.

Re: Conquest 903C vs Destroyer Javelin

Thanks for the input guys. I think the 903C should fit the bill.

Conquest 903C vs Destroyer Javelin

Hey TT,

I was looking to pick up another Javelin, but I've been also wanting to try out a new conquest 903. How do these two rods compare to each other? Any input on the 903C is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Wacky hook size for 5" Senko?

I like a 1/0 - 2/0 finesse wide gap or mosquito hook. A hard sweep hookset tends to work better for me too,

Great treble rod. I've thrown ricos to 5xd's on mine.
How does it compare to a deep throat custom ?
I'm not too sure on that. I've never fished a deep throat custom.

Re: Dobyns 742c vs 742sf HP

Interesting. I understand the spinning has a full-cork handle, so it probably balances better. I feel like my 742c may be a little tip-heavy which is unusual because of Dobyns well-known balance. What do you throw on the spinning compared to the casting? I threw the same techniques on both rods. I ...
