Adam are you up to building a Shark Rod for me. I ordered a United Composite CX Gladiator 7'6" blank.  I want to build a shark rod around this blank.

 I love UC's Blanks. However have you pulled on a Gladiator ?  Will you be using it from a boat ?

I cannot stress enough that this is a beast of a rod. I've plucked over 50 lbs. off the floor with one. Many big fellas find it hard to keep this rod loaded... Jeff

It will be for shore fishing not from a boat.

I like to see & hear from people that are happy with their gear.  
Take this for what ever its worth... In lite of the other blanks that UC makes....
I believe any person using this rod from the beach & happy with the choice after hooking what its capable of is one  rare individual.
This blank wss designed as a rail rod. Better UC Blanks for use with a harness.

I'm fully aware Barrets wraps this blank & that others reccomend it for sharks from the beach.

I've never met you, have no idea of what your physically capable of. I could be very wrong in giving you this advice.
However I am familiar with this rod & know of the whooping it can put not  only on fish but the fellas that  use it.

Any one who needs or can make use of 45 lbs. or more drag using a harness this could be a good rod.

40 lbs. of drag & below from land there are some othet UC Blanks I personally would choose over the Gladiator.

Just some tboughts & again I might be wrong with none of this applying to you... Jeff

Well I am going to need someone to team with to land a big shark. I have three other united composite rods and like them all.  Fishing is a way to share a good time with a few friends.
