As far as we know, this is the first bellyboat catfish rod ever. Catfishing from out of a bellyboat is the latest trend and many MADCAT® prostaffers have asked the people behind MADCAT® to develop a rod for bellyboat fishing. The requirements: a very short handle, a total length of 2,05 meter and a safety ring at the back, where a safety coil cord or heavy duty elastic can be attached. That way, should the rod accidentally fall overboard, it will not be lost. Features a 30 ton nano carbon blank, high quality EVA foam handles (hardness 70), SeaGuide® guides and an aluminium ALPSTM reelseat. Counter weights at the back compensate for the loss of balance by cutting the handle short.
