get yourself a lamiglass bt 963 m blank cut 3 inches off the tip and three inches off the butt,make a 16 1/2 inch rear grip and 6 1/2 inch for grip. take it to a rod builder and have it built, it IS THE BEST TOG ROD, that is all i have used for the last twenty years. a very good investment that will last a lifetime, this rod can also be used for seabass, porgies.

Nice!! There you have two good suggestions...Cowkiller does it for a living thus needs the gear that takes a pounding and keeps going...I do it for fun and the Seeker has never let me down and may cost less than a custom rod builder...but you have two very good options...

Thanks those sure are great options I'm gonna look into pricing that lami on being built...now its time for me to look for a good striper rod to match my torium 20 as well.
