I bought a 7'3 MH Dobyns Fury and it's rated for up to 17lb line... It gonna be my heavier Texas Rig rod and I like throwing 20 lb for that. Do y'all think it'll be fine throwing 20 even though it's only rated for up to 17?

It's not a rating, its a recommendation.

It will be fine with 20 lb. line, and probably 30 lb. braid.
