The best is what feels "best" in your hands. I have several NRX rods but I use a NRX 893 and 894 for jigs and t-rig, far more sensitive than any other rod I have had, buy once cry once, YMMV

Not sure retail but sure feels good!

I did notice what appears to be a fairly heavy metal weight on the rod Butt?

Never seen this on a rod before-is this standard on Dobyns?

Thanks


That's a good deal. $349 retail on that rod.

And yes, they have a metal butt cap.

Falcons... Cara Amistad or Cara Mike McClelland Heavy Cover

Power Tackle 104.5 would be a real close 2nd!

I actually use the Castaway you refer to for my flipping rod only because Judy at Power Tackle told me the 104 doesn’t like braid and I wanted to use it. But I do use the 104 to throw a football head jig.

Power Tackle 144 if you want a 7ft jig rod, Power Tackle 104 if you want a 7ft 6in rod. I have yet to figure out just how they number their rods.

I love my Dobyns DX 744,745 & 746, HP's. Just pick what power rod you need for the technique or conditions. The Champion series are grat rods too. I know you did'nt want cork but if you get a chance pick up one of these rods and check out the quality of the cork used and how it feels. I'm sure you'll like it!

Power Tackle rods have foam handles, many of the other rods suggested (are good jig rods) but do not have foam handles.

The one that has a strong backbone and strong enough to hoist the fish out of cover.
