    Got home yesterday and had a package waiting for me. My TWC Rod. The packaging was very professional and the rod couldnt get damaged at all while shipping with this packaging. Wasnt impressed after removing rod from the packaging, but it was covered by a rod cover. After revealing this masterpiece it seems that this is going to be my favorite rod. Its flexible with backbone, I may even like this rod better than my M/H Tiger Rods. It came just as I bought another James River Rod to put my second Penn 309 on. Now I'm just waiting on my 2 Ming Yang reels to get here. Well anyhow here's a few pics of my TWC Rod and new James River combo.

    I like my TWC rod to, looks like you used the same tools I used to open it up. They are nice rods, I just put some u-40 cork seal on mine. Congrats, on your new rods.

    Thanks man, it wasnt hard once I quit being lazy and went outside to get the hammer and screw driver. I ended up breaking a porcelain statue trying to beat the top off with that at first lol

    Thank you sir, this Rod is amazing in person. I liked how it looked on the site but I was just afraid that it wouldnt have the backbone that I was looking for but boy was I wrong, I just like the fact that it is strong and not heavy. May have to sell some of my other Rods and buy more.

    I am glad you liked the rod, and the way it was shipped. I put over 3 years into getting this rod where it is today. I know how important it is to have a stong back bone but still have a sensitive tip. I travel all over the US and was tired of carring 20 different rods, that was the whole reason I done what I done. Oh ya I have plenty more when your ready.

    Ramon, I am glad you are as happy with your rod purchase decision as I am with mine. It is certainly a good looking, well built rod with a great feel. I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can hopefully put it to the test.

    Man I am glad you liked the TWC rod.I hate to recommend rods to anyone because people have different likes and dislikes.Before I bough my first rod from Jeremy I sent him a P.M. and told him what I was wanting in a catfish rod.Jeremy took the time and told me what these rods will and won't do.Glad I went ahead and purchased three after talking with him.I still am very pleased at the value and quality.
