Another vote for 734 take your pick they are both good! The Dobyns is more balanced!

Definitely Daiwa....and it was my preference for years even before the sponsorship.

I have never held a fishing rod that is more sensitive than Daiwa's. Many other rods are very sensitive, but the Daiwa is extremely, I'm talking very sensitive. I can feel even the very most sensitive bites...it has been a big advantage especially when the bite is tough.

As far as a make and model....I like the Steez and also the Fuego (rod and reel)

All of you are missing the boat hands down POWER TACKLE rods are the best rods I have ever held in my hands....Do your self a faver buy just one and all your other rods will be up for sale....Grassmat GMP5-7'3".I fished Lommis, Powell,and Dobyin's really no comparison.....

I'll be up fornt and honest, if, if I had the money, It would be Dobyn's hands down. I was tackle shop owner, an avid spinnerbait fisherman, and had the pleasure to demo and own a couple. With the rod in my hands I could feel every pluse, every blade turning and what the bait was doing. Now retired and mostly just build baits, but if I was back at tournament fishing, and could afford it, it would Dobyn's 734C and 704C in my boat probably, along with a few others !
Just my .02

Replaced a lot of G Loomis sticks for Rogues over the years. Guess they just feel lighter, quicker, and a bit stronger. Have not tried out a Dobyn's yet. Aftaid it might cost me a bunch of money if I do!

You might be surprised there John. I personally spend quite a bit of time in Texas. Quite a few relatives there and hope to be a resident one day. You should of picked another state
Dont take it as a knock on your rods Gary since I know you make some top of the line stuff. But most of the fisherman I know back in Texas use a real wide variety of stuff including yours. Just does not seem to be as main stream as it does here, at least not yet. Maybe you need a guy from Texas as a staffer....To help spread the gospel!!
