Re: Opinions on best Dobyns rod for jigs

From experience, I think you'll be ok with a 4 or 5 power. If you're running braid to leader like me, the 4 power works fine. If fishing straight fluro or mono, the 5 power would be better. Personally I use the Champ Extreme 784, but any of the 7'3 -7'5 models are good to go.

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.

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,

Maybe try dropping a spoon down and try getting one to react.

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.
