Catfish speciality rod but specs are hard to ignore wanting to use it for stripers. 


Anyone using it for stripers? Looking to put a 4K reel on it and use for swimsuits and pitching tinker Macks up into the rocks. ...or stop being lazy and finish a rod build. Need parts though so have to order something.

Ok, rod came in. I don’t like it.


It seems heavy and the finish could be better. It is not terrible but for a pricey import they could have done better with the blank epoxy coating. Some spots feel like they went a little lean and others a little heavy. 


It also has less guides than I have on all if my 7’ spinning rods. Not a deal breaker if it is by design, but when I load the rod up with line to about 50%, I see at least two spots that are struggling with the distance of the guides. 


Anyways, likely going to return it and try something else or wait until the off season to build an all glass or composite rod for live bait fishing.
