Default Boaters world tournament series rods

With so many people (my self included) always talking about when we have a problem with a product, I figured I would tell you guys something good. Last year I replaced all my standup tackle, with new Tiagras, and Boaters World tournament rods. The rods are model number T50130WA60. They retail for $329.00, and have aluminum buts, and channel lock aluminum reel seats. The buts are Pacific bay, and the guides are all Aftco over sized Wind on rollers. For an extra hundred bucks you can get the bent butt. I have to say that I was at first skeptical about buying boaters world rods, but I had a buddy who had been fishing them, and had nothing but rave reviews. Also, with those components the price was right, so I went ahead and got them. After using them for an entire season, all I can say is WOW!!!. They have been absolutely awesome. Everything about them from the action to the power they posses, has been great. The fit and finish on them rival that of the custom builders, and because they are a boaters world product they stand behind any defects or issues. However, here’s the real deal.....For their holiday sale you get a $45.00 visa gift card with every one you purchase plus if your a member of the captains club, you get another 12 gift certificate for each one that bumps the price down to $272.00. If you went out and bought the rollers and butt on your own with out the blank you’d spend about 250, so that’s a hell of a deal

Good report. I have used their models that compete with the Senator rods and really liked them for striped bass. Good rods!

Mike -

On another note, was there some pics of you and another THT member in Big Game Journal fishing on a 33T? I am terrible with names, but always remember a face and swear it was you and the guy that had the boat Three V's.

I really like those too. I have a bunch of them. Great for sharks and tuna.

Which ones do you use for the Stripers and with what reels?

On a side note, have you been to the lower bay yet this season?

Opps, the ones I have used are not the Tournament series..

However they are great rods for striped bass trolling. I have use the 20-40lb med action 6'6" rods. They have slick butt, al reel seat, aftco stripper and tip. The were mated with 330gti's.

I am not making it to the CBBT this year. I was scheduled to go last weekend during the big blow. The Gale Force winds had us cancel. I am glad we did. It wouldnt have been fun hanging out at the Kiptopeke Inn all day. Besides, we have had a good year right out front here in Annapolis for a while.

I prefer the tekotas too (They just cost me more than twice the amount of a 330gti)

Mike, here is a link to the shot in the mag..:
