I just got the regular one, not the gold. 7' 3" MH casting. Feels very nice, put an STX on it.

Some casting from 6'6" med to 7'8" MH, and spinning from 6'6" med to 7'0" med 5-6 of both. Checked them out today, very nice on the casting rods, not sure about the "no handle on the spinning."

I will have to go and look at them as well. I seen them at a show last year but didn't play around with them to much.

Yesterday I picked up a 7'6" heavy classic carrot stick and I must say for as much as I can do with it right now this feels like a VERY nice rod. Super light for a 7'6" rod and great action looking forward to using it in Fl. in a couple weeks.

I want to look at that extra heavy 8'er they have for a flipping stick. Olski, maybe I'll swing in this weekend to take a look at them.

I bought the girlfriend the 7'8" heavy gold with the "new" quantium catalist (because they matched and i figured she would appreciate that). My thought is that it is a light weight combo the reel is small and will fit well in her hand and it will be something she will like to fish with. the combo feels great, i wish i had one. Oh well maybe next year. Jonah

Does anyone have any negative reviews of these rods? I've got a 6'10" mh casting gold on the way and hear they have good customer service and lifetime warranty. Can I go wrong? Unless I find a job I'll probably just put a citica on it. Any problems with the reel seat or guides?

    • You eat bass and you're going to rip on some grapefruit Shandy? Your self-righteousness knows no bounds.
    • let us know when there weren't racial tensions.
    • I was thinking the same thing, but when I don't see it listed with the features I don't want to go off my own assumption. I sent Tebben a couple emails 2 days ago and hadn't heard anything yet.  I'll give Berkon a try and see what they say.
    • There is a side bi-fold ramp that is similar to the one in the back. He had an aluminum "blank" made to fit in its place so that he could use it as a regular trailer if needed. He still has the ramp and it bolts in when you need it by removing the blank. Not the same brand, but would look similar to this with the side ramp installed...
       
    • Strange, there were racial tensions in 1992, i wonder if there's a coinsidence... Clinton model of divide and conquer.
    • Just remember, for every 1 wackjob chiro there's probably 10 surgeons that don't give a rip about you unless they're able to get surgery approved.  Meaning their advise and prescribed narcotics/injections will eventually lead you to a pay day.  We can't be so naive now folks, but let's all dive into this one case and attempt to destroy the practice while we turn a shoulder to the other, that happens WAY more often.    That number of 10-1 is pretty light by the way.
    • Just for reference, Clinton was elected in 1992 and took office in January 1993. 
    • Sorry I forgot to add, I didn't build on this one, already came built so the brakes were on already. (I built my last one however) But I did look at the Berkon frames before I bought because I was going to build again myself and pretty sure that they had the brakes already. (At least the ones I looked at in their catalog) But I feel like any brand at that size should come with the brakes already, since a 20' house is going to go over the 3k limit.
    • Thanks for the reply trav102, the Berkon frame looks pretty similar to the Tebben and it looks like they do galvanized trailers pretty regularly. Did yours come with trailer brakes?  Or is that something I'd have to add on myself if I go over 3000#?
    • Do the sides in the front come off For your ramps your do they drop down and you use your own?
