Rippin Lips’ extra tough catfish rods deliver top-notch traits, trimmed price-tags
Coralville, IA – Getting big things to budge often takes a tough, powerful tool. Seize a sledgehammer and drive a spike through a stump in seconds. Wield a crowbar and jimmy it loose just as fast. Power winch a half-ton truck from the ditch, like wrenching a colossal catfish from heavy cover.
For power tools and catfish rods alike, brute strength and durability are essential. But take a muscular, manly fishing rod and then substantially trim its weight. Double its sensitivity while you’re at it. Surround it with tough top-notch guides and a beautifully balanced handle system. Now you’ve got something special— a catfish rod worthy of the name, SuperCat®.
Designed by Rippin Lips catfish aficionados, the NEW SuperCat® 2-pice Casting Series features three carefully selected length/actions, created to conquer the species and situations anglers face every day. Built on the foundation of optimized S-Glass / E-Glass / Graphite blanks, SuperCat® rods offer the perfect balance of extreme strength and toughness with a light, sensitive side.
While most catfish rods utilize heavy E-Glass, the SuperCat® series also integrate select S-Glass fibers—a lighter, more advanced fiberglass that’s stronger and stiffer than its traditional counterpart. Another key distinction: S-glass offers nearly twice the modulus of traditional glass, resulting in the optimal blend of blank strength, smoothness and sensitivity.
These might just be the perfect rods for catfishing. Beyond the awesome strength and toughness of these SuperCat® Rods, they’re also exceptionally well balanced. Custom catfish rods—which cost hundreds of dollars— feature special split grip handles, and our SuperCat® now offer this same user-friendly design at a fraction of the price. They tuck comfortably under your arm when battling a big blue or flathead. This grip system also aids casting control and sensitivity—even if you’re fishing a small stream for channel cats. Once you try these rods, it’s hard to use anything else!
The SuperCat® custom EVA split grip handle yields tremendous balance for battling big fish, plus enhanced power for setting hooks and a comfortable under-arm fit while fishing. When building these rods, Rippin Lips insisted on extra hard, chrome plated stainless steel guides. For extra protection and toughness, all guide wraps are thoroughly epoxy coated. And to assure no bite goes undetected—even at night—all rod tips sport high-visibility glow tips.
Available in three lengths and actions, for small stream channel cats to big water blues and flatheads, SuperCat® 2-piece Casting Rods are competitively priced ($44.99 to $54.99) and ready to get bloodied in battle—just as their striking crimson blanks suggest!

This is my go to channel cat rod, the medium action. Very light, feels good casting and good backbone. Very pleased. I wish the medium action rods came with the thicker line guides like on the medium heavy. Still a great rod and good value.

Just Got My 9th Rod
Posted by Paul TX on Jun 2nd 2017
I just received my 9th rod I got 3 of the medium spinning rods 3 of the med hvy casting rods, and just got in 3 med casting rods
After using rods for a while these are by far the best value in rods made for catfishing. These are as good as any rod that cost 2 or 3 times the money

Really nice rods for the price. Will definitely be purchasing more. I just wish the real seats were better. I give them two thumbs up though.
