If I would pick a rod specifically for chatterbaits/ squarebill crankbaits that would be it.
Love the Glorious series - very well made rods.

I own that rod, its awesome like all the glorious rods. Super light and powerful, I have a metanium DC on it and it can do anything, but I've been using it for Tokyo rigs.

Awesome, they are amazing rods, I think that if the conquest offered a split grip they would be very similar.

The Biwako is a 2 pc, blank fits into handle, some people don't like that..I have to admit its not my favorite, but it makes transporting it much easier.

The Rushburn looks awesome, but I have too many rods that are similar in length and action.

Thanks for the heads up. Ebay has 5 pages of glorious rods, so I'm not as limited on models as I first thought. I'll probably smoke on it...so u can make a 'clear headed' decision, lol.
