    Rod action is Med/heavy, 7'6".
    Approx shipping to TN according to UPS:
    Ground: 23.71
    2nd Day: 33.54
    Next day: 56.96

    EDIT: Just remembered Mickeys post on Shipping costs. Here's what I'll do, split the shipping cost with the buyer.

    chris here is some info on these rods:
    The lake rod is execellent for Drift Fishing lakes or reservoirs. Or Catfishing rivers when you need 2-6oz sinkers. If you fish lakes, Ancored or tied up to an old tree this rod will work for you. If your after Monster Cats in brush piles or Just a few eater size I think you will like the way this rod handles all your Catfishing needs. Circle hooks or J hooks both work great with this rod. Line Rating; 15-40lb

    Is that 150 for all three or 150 each? I was also wondering if the eyes are double wrapped. That is where the wrap is under and over the eye foot this keeps the eye foot from being able to cut into the blank. Thats the only way i buy my big rods for fishing below the dams here in okla.




    Foggy :cool2:

    i think hes asking 150 for all three witch is a great deal. the eyes are not double wrapped (i agree probally should be) but the way they are wrapped the appear to be, good job of tight wraps to pull off the look. they are still an exceptional rod and i would be glad to take them off his hands when i have the money (probally be a while) if he still has them witch i doubt he will.

    On the Catfish Safari Rods the guides are double wrapped.....simply go to his website and read for yourself.

    They are great rods.....And that's a awesome deal.....I had a 98 pounder caught on one of the Lake Rods.

    Right from Steves page about his poles.

    "I double wrap all eyes. Cheaper rods are single wrapped. Double wrapping Is not just for looks (although they do look much better ). If you think about it the eye is a slick surface and rod is a slick surface its hard to connect two slick surfaces together. Thats where the double wrapping comes in. The first wrap is like putting grip tape on the rod for the eye to stick to. So now you have slick / rough /slick. They wrap the color put on a coat of epoxy ( CHEAP RODS WOULD BE DONE BY NOW THATS WHY THEY SINGLE WRAP ) then set the eye. When thats done they wrap the eye and put on several coats of epoxy. Double wrapping is double the labor but its well worth it."

    I own several of the CS poles and they are great poles and this is a great price on them.
    (OK I have more than several :roll_eyes:)

    Thats a great deal, I wish I had the money, I been wanting a CS lake rod for a long time. I don't need 3 of them tho. I reckon by the time I got the money they will be gone. I will keep in mind in case I get some money.
