    Guides - Hvy Duty, Titanium Nitride Boat Rod.
    Under-wraps – sizeA.
    Over-wraps – size D.
    Custom 3D Tiger-wrap .
    Cork Handles .
    H/D Alum seat.

    Kenny makes great rods. Alot of the people on here use them. Look in the BOC library and you can see some pixs.

    From everything I've read and seen from his posts. I don't think you will have any problems landing anything you hook. When the time comes, I've already made up my mind i'm going to get with him, and I don't have any hesitations about it.

    I don't have one of Kenny's rods but have followed and admired his builds on the rod building section. He is very knowledgable about rod building and freely shares information with anyone who asks questions! :big_smile: I would say you can rest assured you are buying a top notch rod! :cool2:

    There was an interview released to the members of the Catfish Syndicate about Kenny.

    He does excellent work, and unlike some custom rod builders that have been on the BOC, a no hassle man to work with.

    I wish I,d never seen one of Kennys rods.Now I can,t stop dreaming about them!They,re some sweet looking pieces,you can tell by the components he uses in them that they,ll walk the walk too.I don,t know what more a catman could ask for.They,re at the top of my TO BUY list.
