I have both and as mentioned above the 734 is as close to a "do everything" rod as I own. For Texas rigged plastics it really shines. With the exception of larger jigs or big plastics(10"-12" worms...) a T-rigged 734 is always on my deck. My 733 is what I throw smaller squarebills, yellow magics, weightless Senko's, wacky rigs...and it's great for these. Honestly, for my type fishing the 733 is almost a finesse rod.
