Last bumping rod I'll probably ever buy came in today. I have 3 now and a musky rod (I don't really count that one as a bumping rod). It's definitely Madkatz quality. Very light rod so the big Okuma Komodo 471p doesn't seem too heavy. It balances pretty well to me. Don't know what that's worth since I haven't tried bumping yet, just info for guys/gals stuck on options. Handle and reel seat feels great. Guides and wraps are top notch.
