    I’m looking to buy 4-6 rods and before I go buy new ones I will ask on here if anyone has some they want to let go. I use rippin lips med/heavy now but I want to up grade to aluminum reel seats. Let me know what you got

    I haven't heard of Reel Katnappers. WOW!! Another rod to ponder over. They look very similar to BCF rods but made of E-Glass.

    Jeremy, are you upgrading because you had a reel seat break or cause toy problems, or just think they are better?

    I have used both and do prefer aluminum but I have not had any issues with graphite or banded.

    tight lines

    Hopefully they have some in soon. I went ahead and ordered 4 brand new Muddy river blue cat rods from Burning Drag tackle. I’m still going to order a few of the Katnapper rods when they get them in stock.

    I use Rippin Lips almost exclusively and fish a lot and have caught some big blues on them. Everyone has their preferences but I've never felt I'm under gunned with Rippin Lips.

    I bought a shattered cat at the conference this year. It broke when I was setting the drag on a 6lb weight. Could've been a fluke. My only beef with them is not being able to talk with them. Wont answer their phone, unable to find a email address and their message box on their website won't let me submit. I was really looking forward to trying that rod out.

    Before these Muddy River rods I had only used rippin lips and my cheap white ugly stick catfish rods. I just wanted rods with an aluminum real seat and no finger guard.
