The 703c is effectively a Medium by most people's standards despite it's MH given rating as dobyns are commonly thought to be 1/2 to a full power below ratings. In practice it really is just about perfect for 1/4-3/4oz lures and for a wide variety of techniques.

Do you like the fury or Loomis E6 better? Both have lifetime warranties.


If you want to spend a couple more bucks the E6 is where it's at. Balance, feel, power for heavier baits but maintains great accuracy with smaller baits as well. Really, really excellent rod.



I am the opposite,, I like the Fury better than the E6.

My complete lineup is Fury rods and I absolutely love them. Very strong, sensitive and all around reliable rods. By far best rod for around the $100 price point

Been using them for 3 years and for the money they are hard to beat.

Thanks for the info! I’m looking into buying one now. I checked out a heavy action @ Academy a few days ago and it felt light and well built.

I've used them a lot in saltwater. Caught snook, tarpon, snapper and sharks on them. Haven't broke one yet.

When I look at prices they're $80-$90/rod higher, not a couple more bucks.

How do they compare to the Falcon Bucoo?

fury’s are 600% better rods than the bucco. Bucco’s used to be alright but I believe they switched the way they’re made and I’ve broken a couple since they changed. Dobyns are definitely the best way to go and a Texas company can’t beat it
