By the end of the month Randy will have the 20/0 kits and I have the side plates ready to install on my kit. Then Khanh will get the blank as soon as I can get the parts together.

Can't wait to see this Super Duty combo. This will be capable of bringing to the beach most any shark your physically able to handle.

Hope to see pics of you at  the beach, saddled up with a deep bend in that rod.....  Grin

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

Im not familiar with UC blanks so I searched a bit about it.

CX 70 Invictus   7’0”   FAST          Unlimited           1.0   12   0.95           16.5   $193
CX 70 Gladiator   7’0”   FAST          Super Unlimited   1.0   13   0.978   19.0   $210


what would be the difference on a blank marked as "unlimited" versus the "super unlimited"  Undecided

The blank is 7'6" Gladiator and it is a tree stump. I am going to build a fighting chair for it.

The super is just more of the umliimted. I know a few who  an unlimited rated UC Rod from a harness.

I would say for 99% of humans the super unlimited needs to be fished from a chair. The suoer just takes the unlimited to another level.
 A rod I will never have a need for... Jeff

thanks, I have hard time holding a fish on 130lb rod with 35# drag hahaha (stand-up fight)

so, I can only imagine what woould be fighting a fish on an unlimited blank or the super-unlimited one..
are you sure there is no a super-duper-unlimited blank somewhere?  Grin

You do it from a chair and harness. The rod and reel are way to much weight to try it without it.
