Went by Steve Browns Catfish Safari rod and tackle shop yesterday. He had his new Flathead rod there. It is a full 1 piece eight foot e-glass rod with green wraps and the the handle is wrapped in camoflagued cord. These rods are really nice, I couldnt help myself and had him order me 3 of them. :big_smile: Can't wait till next week to get them. Heres a couple of pictures. Its hard to see all the the camo pattern in these small pics. We put several reels on them to see how they looked. He had a green 7000 that matched it perfect. The silver 7000ic3 and gray shimano tekota reels also look awesome on the rod. If your looking for a new rod you gotta check these out.
