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 master catman John Jamison, Rippin Lips’ new SuperCat Series feature six 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 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,” Jamison asserts. “Beyond the awesome strength and toughness of these SuperCat Rods, they’re also exceptionally well balanced. Some of my finest custom catfish rods—which cost hundreds of dollars— feature special split grip handles, and my SuperCats now offer this same user-friendly design at a fraction of the price. They tuck comfortably under my arm when I’m battling a big blue or flathead. This grip system also aids casting control and sensitivity—even if I’m simply fishing a small stream for channel cats. Once you try these rods, it’s hard to go back to other models.”
SuperCat’s 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, Jamison also insisted on extra hard, chrome plated stainless steel guides. For extra protection and toughness, all guide wraps are epoxy coated. And to assure no bite goes undetected—even at night—all rod tips sport high-visibility glow tips.
Available in eight lengths and actions, for small stream channel cats to big water blues and flatheads, SuperCat Rods are competitively priced ($35.99 to $84.99) and ready to get bloodied in battle—just as their striking crimson blanks suggest. All rods/combos come with complete one-year manufacturer’s warranties.
