Is the champion extreme or xp, whatever, 784 gonna be the same as the old 784 ML ??? 784 ML is the greatest crig rod ever and mine is near death.

And before it gets started I dont care what crig rod you use. I like the 784 ml and that's all I want to hear about.

I have a 784 Extreme HP I use for carolina rigs. Not a bad rod at all but not worth the retail price IMO. Sorry I can't be more help.

I hear you, they are all too much but if I'm gonna pay to much I might as well like what I'm paying too much for.

The newer 784 is not the same as the old 784 ML. Have both and I also prefer the ML. Have run across a couple used ML models but they were not in the condition I wanted to buy. The newer ones feel like a power softer, wish they had a 785 version.

Dobyns is the most overrated rod on the TFF!

I have many high end rods Nrx , Megabass Desteoyers, Orochiis , Gary Loomis Edge,
And Dobyns is my favorite. Great people up there. Own both 784 models. Both the best 3/4 oz football head rod I’ve ever fished. The HP 784 landed a 50 plus pound Blue cat no problem. Love their rods. Since I started fishing Dobyns haven’t bought anything else. Probably have over a dozen of them. Mostly Hps extremes and one kaden.

I fish mostly kistler although the constant insert popping out has me about sick of those. The suckage of rod guides is a whole nother topic

I haven't tried the older 784 to the Xp model but other Dobyns extreme older rods seem softer than the XP models that I have. The old 703 seems very similar to the 702 XP.

The warehouse is located in Sulfur Springs and he might have a couple of the older ones there. He has a ton of used rods to choose from.

I have two of the older 874's and I agree, they are a fantastic C-rig rod.

Have you seen these new C-rig rods? Gots LED lights on 'em that turn off and on when raised and lowered. Perfect for night fishin'!


😎 No matter where ya go, there ya are... 😎

The soft tip is what I like about the 784 ml, it almost seems to light to you figure out it's not, its alot softer than the 804 which I break fish off on hook set with
