thanks for the info leprechaun. honest opinion on the chathams do you think they'd be easier to keep tight on a fish solo than the telephone poles with the way they load up.

more bend = more travel (like a shock absorber) which keeps the line tight a little longer should you need to walk away from the rod for a sec...so for solo fishing, that is a big advantage IMO. would never go back to the short stiffies.

It was most likely built for a friend of mine. He got a settlement for a car wreck he was in when he was like 19. He buys a boat and keeps it in brewers in plymouth. Horrified! Was the name of the boat. We got thrown out of brewers in short order and he ended up selling it after a season or two. Guy was crazy as shit and still is. I can ask him about them when i see him. Tight lines
