Hey Mike Mitchell,

I liked the American Premium (?) brand fiberglass big cat rods you are using and want to replace my el-cheap-o Wal-Mart rods with something more like yours.

Before I buy a fiberglass rod, however, I'm interested in knowing more about monster cat rods in graphite.

I think my Penn 320 GT-2 Reels, with their graphite frames, would be exceptionally suited to a big cat graphite rod.....built basically just like your fiberglass, but only in a lighter-weighing graphite.

Do you know of a source for big cat graphite rods?

Perhaps I'm looking for something, also, that I don't need. Anyway, I just want to consider graphite before I drop some dough on four matched rods, whatever material I select.

Any thoughts? Sources?
