    HI! Does anybody out there in the boc own or ever used a Blackhorse custom rod? I watch the Catfishing America Show all the time, and the host of the show uses them. Blackhorse Custom Rods makes a " twisted cat series" rod. This rod has the guides offset through the whole rod blank. The purpose of doing this, is to help balance the reel in your hands while fighting a big fish. My question is: do these rods cast well? I will call the rod maker Lyle Stokes in the near future for more questions. I just want some feedback from the members of the boc for right now. You're help will be greatly appreciated!!:big_smile::big_smile:

    Thanks!!
    Fishing Forever!!

    The first US patent on it was dated 1909.
    It was being used in Europe before that.
