I have no affiliation other than being one of his brand new customers sooo.....
While trying to further improve on our catch rates I have been looking for longer rods with some backbone without being very heavy and too stiff at the tips. I've even looked for blanks that I can wrap myself. I saved a web site years back that made something interesting but the link saved was dead a few months ago so I wrote it off until I recently found his facebook page by mistake. I connected up with Ed this past Sunday via email and spoke to him the same day about the rods. I ordered them on Sunday, got shipping confirmation on Monday morning and both rods arrived today in perfect shape. Great service!
The rods are just exactly what I've been looking for and a very good bargain for the price with nearly perfect quality. $107.90 including priority shipping for 2 16' carbon/graphite rods is cheap guys. The rods are nice a stiff with good backbone yet have a fast taper tip.
I tried to order B&M's through several sources each time being told they didn't know when they could get them.
