Whisker Whip XL Rod Series - Product Features


Designed and tested by catfishermen, for catfishermen


The Whisker Whip XL is a 10’ 2-piece E-glass rod designed with maximum visibility and performance in mind. As a medium action catfish rod, the Whisker Whip XL detects and responds to the lightest bites, yet has a durable, flexible backbone that can master just about any catfish fight. Furthermore, the length of the Whisker Whip XL is great for accurate, long-distance casting, increases your drifting coverage, and helps with controlling your catfish in a fight. It’s perfect for tangling with channel cats, blue cats or flathead catfish.


Tangling with Catfish is committed to providing high quality, affordable rods to our anglers. From grip to tip, TWC provides the best in the construction and materials.


Your rod should never slip in a fight with a catfish. That is why the Whisker Whip XL rod features a rubber bottom that allows for the best grab on the rod. The cross cut EVA foam handle also encourages a better grip. Furthermore, the length of the foregrip of the Whisker Whip XL provides plenty of hand room for better leverage during a fight.


Another feature that sets the Whisker Whip XL apart is its reel seat. The reel seat is made of heavy duty machined aluminum and is ribbed on the inside for a stronger bind. It has two aluminum locking nuts with a rubber washer in between to ensure the tightness of the reel.


Each of our Whisker Whip XL 10’0” rods are made from strong, E-Glass blank. E-Glass blank is a lightweight fiberglass material that is unbelievably durable and provides a great bend and flex during a fight. The Whisker Whip XL also comes with a stainless steel hook keeper that prevents wear and tear on the guides. The Whisker Whip XL features 10 double footed, solder-reinforced guides, as well as a tip, that are made of stainless steel. Each guide is wrapped with a thick black wrap and a sports a double epoxy coating for remarkable durability.
