Dobyns Champion Series 765 FLIP or 766 FLIP is tough to beat in that price range.

And they’re HQ is in Sulphur Springs. Visited for the first time a couple weeks ago with a couple rods I needed stitched up/replaced, they were super helpful and had me out the door in 15 minutes. Every rod they make available in person. Big fan of Dobyns!!!


If you can't find em wind em.

I am a big fan of the Megabass U.S. Destroyer Warhammer for the heavy work and the Megabass U.S. Destroyer Bunker Buster for lighter punching. cheers

I am already saving for the bunker buster for pitching 1/2oz jigs in thick cover. I wanted to also buy the warhammer but have heard reviews about the war hammer breaking as well as the onager

This is what I use, but there might be a newer model that is a bit longer. Either way, Power Tackle Rods are legit!

I have not seen any Warhammers break and only 1 Onager that broke the first year we had them. I will look at actual numbers this weekend but its not been an issue that I know of.

Sink, can you explain the difference? I’m a PT junkie but don’t have too many of the newer models! I hear the “one” series are amazing!
