    The last couple years I have been very lucky on cathing big flatheads, I have caught the following.

    55-lbs
    50-lbs
    45-lbs
    42-lbs
    40-lbs

    Everyone of these fish came on nite stik rods, are there better rods? Sure but for 40 bucks each they work for me.

    Got to agree with ya there. Absolutely no need to spend $80-$100+ on a rod when the American Spirit rods will reel in anything you get ahold of. I love them too.

    I've used one of those rods for several years with good success, also, until yesterday, when the reel seat starting twisting a little, mis-aligning with the guides. I don't know how to fix that, so will probably retire the rod. Thanks for posting.

    for the price you cannot beat the night stick rods. they are basically indestructable and can take alot of abuse. another good rod for around $40 is the wildcat king kat supreme rods ive been using them for a while and have had no problems with them either.

    I've been eyeing these rods up. Is there any difference between the cork handled models and the foam models besides the cork?

    The cork handle rods are of much better quality than the EVA grip rods they sell. There is a reason there is a large price difference.

    Aside from the cork handle, I can't find one. Every description I can find for both rods are exactly the same minus the cork handle.

    They have more guides(better guides at that) and the 7'6" ones are one piece. The reel seats are better on the pro models. They are a little stouter. They just look like a better built rod too. They also have a picture of a catfish on the blank :smile2: which is just cool I think!
