    I just bought a new rod for big cats off of Ebay. This is a 13' Okuma Tundra surf fishing rod, and I got it for the opening bid of $32.00.

    The ad said "Check item description and payment instructions or contact seller for details" regarding the shipping cost. Since the description said "Shipping & Handling $0.00 USPS Priority Mail" I figure I just got a nice rod for a good price.

    I haven't done any saltwater fishing for 30 years. I just figure that this rod should go really well with some of my larger "new" Penn reels, like my 500 and Squidder, 285, 209, etc. I will use it in pursuit of channels and flatheads in lakes and rivers in Nebraska.
