Review by Pro-Staffer Dean Silvester
As a tournament bass fisherman my rod choice is vital to my success, having a rod to suit each technique I use is also a bonus.
Tournament fishing is difficult mentally and sometimes physically, having a lightweight well-structured rod allows me to focus on what is important. The Dobyns Champion Extreme rod is made by bass anglers for bass anglers and when using the rod it is easy to see. With cork reel seats and light weight Zirconia guides these rods offer me the ultimate in sensitivity when fishing soft plastics on a slow roll yet have the taper and control to be able to fish small blades and not pull hooks.
All the rods in the Champion Extreme range that I run have identical lengths, tapers and fittings. When fishing a tournament with the pressure on I like to be able to change lure techniques and the only thing that feels different is the lure. This way I don’t need to re-learn the rod or feeling of the retrieve. In a high pressure situation every cast counts and I can’t afford to waste one with weed on my lure or the lure not tracking correctly.
The appearance and finish of the Champion Extreme is nothing short of impressive whilst the price is available on most budgets and the no fault warranty program is hard to walk past, no matter how you break it they will replace it.
