    I also got two, fished a tournament up north with them (bad idea, not one biteon either, should never fish a tournament with new rods, or so i was told), but the are awesome looking rods that feel good when you pick them up, just need to hook up with a hawg and test their backbone out.

    Congrats on your new rods guys. Surges are great rods for sure. I have few of them and love em. Let's not forget the catfish safari rods. I have 6 of steve channel cat rods and love them. Steve has been a good friend of Gateway. You can go to his website directly at www.Catfishsafari.Com

    again congrats on the surges. They are great rods. I sure love mine

    I may have to try out one of these rods someday to see what the fuss is about but frankly I have never had any complaints with my Tiger rods.

    I actually got 6 of the channel cat rods Mike. Got them for fishing for dinks n rats, and for the kids to catfish with. Very soft action and tip which are lethal on the channel cats and small fish.

    I'll agree with that. I have a $250 custom and surge rods and the catfish safari beats them bad. Then again everyone likes a different action.
