Designed specifically for the fastest growing catfish technique, this rod has been field tested for over a year by our pro staff. The blanks are made of 80% high density carbon with a blend of fiberglass. This lightweight combination provides superior strength, balance and sensitivity and allows fishermen to hold the rod all day without fatigue. The 18.5” handle is made of genuine Portuguese cork with a line keeper. The stainless steel guides prevent abrasion from braided lines. Extra stiff tip to pull large fish out of deep water.
