The GO-S-822M? Can get them at any shop as Rapala import them as part of the gomoku range. Seen them in a few cbfs and independents

Got the rods. This Catana looks nice for the price. I don't think this is suitable to cast 40 grams metal but should be OK for 25 grams. Will give it a go and see how this thing will perform on SP and jigs. I might even be tempted to cast heavier metal. If it breaks, I will go to shimano for warranty. :-)

Cant complain. Definitely value for money.

Good luck with that.

On the original topic, I bought a silstar egi rod. They had 2 models about 8' and about 9'. They are legit egi rods/blanks albeit only entry level, the guides are not Fuji but it has served me very well and I got it on special at complete angler for $89. I can recommend for the price.

I have used it to chuck large tassies and could hit the opposite bank of emerald lake! Though the action left a fair bit to be desired being fairly slow.

I guess it pays to know someone on these places, yeah? ;-) ;-)
