Dobyns 736C - Has anyone used this rod before?

Hi everyone,
I have been looking for a flipping stick or at least a more stout pitching rod. Long story short, my grandpa knows the owners of a tackle shop in Oregon real well and I have a deal going where I can get a brand new Dobyns 736C for $120 (sells for $240)! It seems like it might be slightly short (7'3") for flipping but that is a tough price to pass up. Has anyone on this site ever used this rod before? What did you think of it? Thanks!
Here are the specs:
cork-full 736C 7'3" 1pc. 15-30lb, 3/8-2oz, Hvy Ex Fast Action Frogs, Pitchin' & Flippin'

I haven't used that particular model, but I have the 765 Flip, the 763c, and the 705c and I like all of them for largemouth. I use the 705 with 16 lb Toray Fluorocarbon for pitching to largemouth on weed edges, points, and beaver huts a lot and don't think its too short. The 765Flip works better for heavy cover applications and I also use it for frogs. Both are very sensitive and powerful sticks. Dobyns had some issues with generation 1 rods breaking at a higher rate than the industry standard. For that reason, he changed factories and hasn't had the problems with Generation 2 rods.
You can find guys that have that specific rod and ask questions on Dobyns facebook page http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=116348690589 , but I am sure you will like it.

Is it a Gen 1 or 2 rod? Shoot.. Either, it's probably going to be an awesome rod.
