Would you get the 703c or 704c? Some reviews say the 704 feels more like a MH than a H. Thanks

I use the 704 and Im sure it is a MH the 705 is heavy. The 703 is a bit to light especially if your going to fish it around any kind of cover.

I use the dobyns dx 704 and it's just right. I have a dx 703 and it feels more like medium. I use the 703 for shakey heads. The savvy series should be the same.

I use the dx 703 and I really like it for t-rig. I usually use smaller worms (baby brush hogs, craw worms) and lighter weights (1/8 to 1/4) and feel that it's great for it. If I'm stepping up to a mag worm or heavier weights for pitchin' or something, then I'll use different heavy rod.

I am strange, I use the 766 Savvy as my T-rig and jig rod. Use the 804 Carolina Riggin for that purpose. I just like long heavy rods. Hope this helps. I would go with the 704, not the 703, unless you are throwing like 1/8th to 3/16th weights.

Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

703/704 is right on the borderline for t-rigs. 1/4 oz and heavier - 704. 1/4 oz and lighter - 703.

Since 75% of my t-rigging is with a 3/16 oz weight, I use my champ 703. My savvy 704 is far too heavy for light t-rigs.

If I only had to choose 1, I'd go with the 703. It's easier to fish the heavy stuff on it than it is to fish the lighter stuff on the 704.

I appreciate the advice! How do y'all feel the sensitivity is on the savvy for tx rigs? Worth the money?

They are worth more money! Dobyns rods are super sensitive and well worth the money.
