Shimano TDR Conventional Rod
Good Circle Hook Rod
This is my go to rod for using circle hooks. I paired my rod with a Shimano tr200-g. I do a lot of bank fishing for striped bass and catfish and this rod has no problem chucking a 4 oz weight pretty far. I may even attempt to test both rod and reel with sturgeon fishing. A trigger and hook holder would be a nice addition to the already great rod.

Seriously good for Catfishing
This rod is a very good rod in that it is not to flimsy but still has plenty of firmness. You can whip it and throw it a country mile. You better get you a couple of these their great!

I have used this rod since I started ocean fishing 3 years ago. I really cannot recommend it highly enough. This rod is able to take abuse, and I don't mind it because of the price. These rods have enough back-bone to pull fish off the bottom (Lingcod) and enough sensitivity to fish more surface applications as well. Excellent rod for the price!

great rod for catfish
this rod is one of the best circle hook rods I've ever used. great for drifting or stillfishing for all types of catfish. very lightweight but with plenty of power and can cast a mile. I have landed blue cats up to 60 pounds with this rod and strongly recommend it for anyone who loves to fish catfish.
