Default Light Rod with gimbal butt

Is there a light rod (8-16lbs) rod out there with a gimbal butt end? We fish from the boat and although most of my rods have the gimbal butt end, we have a few light rods we use on the reefs in the bay without the gimbal butt. They will be used with Shimano Baitrunner 4000 - 8000 and have 8lbs test mono on them. Any ideas?

You can find the gimbals online to add them yourself. I have done this on a few of my smaller rods to lock them into the rod holders for trolling small tackle. Mudhole.com and therodroom.com both sell them, along with others.

Take a look at the Fuji & PacBay hard rubber gimbels. Work great for your application.
