Just in case anyone hasn't run across or heard of it yet, Centaur rods makes slow pitch rods. Picked one up today that I've had my eyes on for a bit. But as usual, I'll go to the shop for one thing and end up with many other things lol. I picked up a 6'6 xul 40-120gr rod. The responsiveness in this rod was amazing. I could feel the jig in my soul lol. Very very nice responsive tip and good back bone! Price...... $150. I highly recommend taking a look if you come across one!!!
