Another rod blank ?

Hey guys, what would be a good all around bait casting rod blank for catfishing. I would prefer to use a glass rod and not afraid of spending a little for a good one. Thanks, Roger

What size and type of cats are you chasing Roger?

Are you looking for a back bouncer or just a bait rod?

We have several models in the ATX and Bushido line that will work for you.

Roger, our XC802 blank has caught on for big catfish: [rodgeeks.com]

It's a composite blank with glass in the upper section. Other than that we have a range of glass blanks in our S-Glass series.

I just looked at these blanks a few minutes ago and this might be the way to go. The selection just about covers eveything. I did have a ? about the color options though. When you say unfinished what color are we talking about? I would prefer these rods to be a solid black color. Thanks, Roger
