Custom Rod wanted

If this is posted in the wrong place, then I apologize....

I'm looking to have a couple of rods built for catfish but I don't want a regular catfish rod. I'm not looking for that big & heavy type of rod that will just overpower a nice 20-40 lb cat. That's the normal size caught in my lake for good cats. There are much bigger ones but it's just not the norm to hook one. I still want to enjoy the fight. My favorite rod ever was the Cabelas magtouch in terms of feel & toughness. I've landed 40 pounders and that was a an awesome fight but it was still awesome with a 5-10 pounder as well. Is it possible to find a blank that might be close to that feel?

Spinning rod, maybe 7-8ft and throw about 2-4 ounces of lead maybe 50 yards max.

Thank you gentelmen for the time.

I have used that, unfortunately, there is no one listed in my state. I apologize if this is not the place to be doing this but I don't really know how else to go about trying to buy custom made rods.

I'm in Oklahoma. However, that's really not the problem. The problem is that a lot of the people listed on that rod builder search, are no longer. Emails just get returned. A rod maker doesn't have to be where I'm from. Just be good at what they do & I'm happy.
