I'm looking for some info on the Centaur Combat Arm 84SM popping rod. Has anyone seen one of these in person or better yet, has anyone here had a chance to fish with one of these rods?
They look like a nice rod with plenty of backbone. There's a short video of the rod in action at the link below.
Hopefully someone knows about these rods as they seems to be very little information about them.

Never fished one but I'd take a pass, too many well proven choices out there. Black Hole and United Composites have some really good choices, also check out the Race Point rods from Saltywater Tackle. Can get a shade pricey but solid values despite the price. For a solid popping stick that also works stickbaits well, Black Hole Cape Cod 86N.

I always question the ability of a popping rod to throw a lure when the video shows it fighting a fish but not casting a lure. In that video I’m not impressed with the rods action.

I just picked up a Centuar combat arm 81s for $271. Cant wait to fish it putting a saragosa 10000 on it.
