Thats more to what i am getting at a chevy at a lambo price. I just ordered a slime cat rod the special edition green camo foam xmh 7'6 rod cant wait to try it. If you let these companies sell at these prices or pull a team catfish eventually we will have to pay $199 for a e-glass rod built like a mondo with no high end parts. I know ppl can buy what they want if they want too and ppl can charge what they want. But if its a custom made rod why is there only one color?? Why cant you choose the better reel seat if its custom made or etc it all seems fishy to me. I cant wait to see a slime rod under the uv light and see it shine!!
