Dobyn’s en­tered the world of ul­tra-high-end fish­ing rods with the Xtasy, and from tip to butt, it dons the finest com­po­nents. It’s a beau­ti­fully crafted rod with the per­for­mance to match. “This thing is gor­geous, and it casts and loads like a champ,” An­dreula com­mented. On-the-wa­ter test­ing con­firmed it had the high­est level of casta­bil­ity, ac­cu­racy, and sen­si­tiv­ity of the group. The Xtasy uti­lizes ad­vanced Nano ma­te­rial that is super-light and well­bal­anced while main­tain­ing enough power to sur­vive our tor­ture test. Dobyn’s spared noth­ing when fit­ting the rod with Fuji Ti­ta­nium Torzite guides, a painted Fuji graphite reel seat, and high­est-grade cork. The re­li­a­bil­ity of the blank is bol­stered by a Kevlar wrap­ping that helps en­sure this stick will be with you for many years, which helps jus­tify the price.
