Probably my favorite reel.

Awesome. What handle is that??
It's the handle from a Daiwa Ardito reel (a tatula CT). I placed an order from EASTACKLE and saw the reel discounted and had to have that handle. :lol:
Buying a whole reel for the handle because it is purple. The TT way.

This rod is surprisingly light, balanced, and sensitive. One could easily throw big bass baits and umbrella rigs with it. Can't wait to hook a cat on this setup.

After looking through this I need to add something purple to my rod locker.

I realize the purple on that catfishing rig is subtle, being only in the logo and thread wrap highlights:

So I thought I'd step it up a notch.

Purple? I don't know...

Is it still possible to order those rods? I need one for my Racing Viola. Since I already have one with the shiny carbon think I'll go with the matte carbon if still available.

I believe they are no longer in production and when I purchased from megabass it wasn't customizable like the standard superleggras, just a limited production run left/right handles.

thanks everyone for their comments.

Don’t you love when you get home from work and you got a couple rod tubes just leaning against the house waiting for you to get home? Since it is the 2018 purple edition, and 2019 is the year of no more shelf queens I had to have something to match my P.O. TD-Z. I grabbed a Designo Leben DLT-C71H+R2S Torque Tune purple edition. I can’t wait to get this combo on the water.
Sorry for the crappy pics.
