The two raffled off at the DT gathering were the same--the HJ 1327 blank rated 2-5. The name of the blank has been changed to "Slingshot", I've heard.

The heavier one rated 4-7 wasn't in yet the last time I was in there, 3 weeks ago. They may be in by now.

Jae, I was in CMS over the weekend and asked if they had any Century Rods. They only had one built a 1327 I believe with low riders and it was 4 bills. I gave it a shake/wiggle and they feel real nice, very light rod for an 11 footer. I would really like to throw one to compare it to my 2-6 oz mojo. Good luck in your search.

that one might be added to the collection, but i may have em adjust it for me cause i have short arms and reel placement is important with lowriders

I have a factory 1327.The reel seat seems a little short for me ,I wish it were a little longer.I really like the feel of the 10' stealth but again,reel seems just too short.I f it were not for that I think I would have bought it already.The 1327 threw jigs to 4 oz the other night at the canal and fished them very well.

i got the 3-7 factory for the canal for the occasional heavy weight shad (6.25 ounce).. Amazingly it throws a diawa sp minnow very well ,, I even threw a 14g maria jigg with it .. Great canal rod ... I tried the 1-5 too , I'd prefer that if I was just throwing plugs and plan on picking one up for the beach .

The 1327 makes for a nice eel stick also. I've been using mine this week for eels and occasional jigging (3oz) with good results. And it obviously throws plugs real nice. Looking at the 1328 for heavier stuff

the 3-7oz you bought should be the 1328.. the 2-5 I bought i the 1327.. your right, these rods have no way to identify them,,,, except that its a century

As long as it cast good from the service road you will be fine.
