Ditto. Excellent value rod for senkos, flukes, horny toads and spinner baits. I also like to use it for light t-rigs and it was absolutely launch a 1/4 oz lipless. 1/2 oz even just a little flimsy on the heavier.


If you can't find em wind em.

I got a Dobyns Champion XP Split Cast 734 last month, and its a really nice rod but I think the 4 power is a little heavy for weightless flukes. A 733 would have been about right (if you down twitch it and are shorter, you might want a 7 ft vs the 7'3" length tho)

I like using my 765 and 766 flipping rods. I've had a extra eye added to them to help casting.

DX743 here as well for weightless flukes and anything similar... good stick. I basically carry the DX 743-746 to cover the weight range for soft plastics and jigs, with the 746 really more of a dedicated punch rod. Champion 704/705G/765G cover my crankbait needs, and 702/703SF for the finesse/smaller stuff.

Agreed, 733 champion or the DX 743. GREAT rods for weightless presentations. If our on a budget, nothing worng with the FR 733c, either. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
