Catfish Sumo's Toughest Rod That Can Dead-lift 150 Pounds!

At some point in every catfish angler's life, you realize that the fish you're catching are getting bigger and bigger, and putting up tougher fights.

Are you having doubts about your current gear? Do you need more power to confidently battle trophy catfish out of tough situations?  Then it's time for the Catfish Sumo Elite 150™

The Elite 150™ can dead-lift 150 pounds easily, and is built with the quality components needed for drag-out fights.

Have you thought about how awesome your fishing trips would be if you could...

  • Reach the areas where big catfish are feeding?
  • Hook more of the fish you get bites from?
  • Muscle big catfish out of tough snags?
  • Confidently fight even a monster flathead or blue catfish?
  • Boldly control and land any fish?

Ready to fight confidently every time?

When you don't have the right tackle, hooking into a large fish can go from being awesome to scary.  When you aren't able to be in control of the fight, not only are you distracted worrying about your tackle failing or losing the fish, but sometimes you can become in danger of physical harm, too.

Make The Fight Fun Again

If you didn't have to worry about a big fish breaking your tackle, and your catfish rod had enough backbone to haul even monster fish, imagine how much more you'd be able to focus on enjoying the fight!

Anyone else fed up with expensive designer rods, fads that flash in and out, hype, and gimmicks?

Fishing isn't new. But that doesn't keep new fads from popping up almost every day.  It seems like a day doesn't go by that Youtube gets covered with some new gimmick, a new tackle company, some magic piece of tackle, or some secret trick.

They're here today, and gone tomorrow.

But the reality is that there simply isn't any lucky spot, magic bait, or secret rig.  In all of our training, we focus on picking: The Right Spot, The Right Catfish Bait, and The Right Catfish Rig.  That's why we refuse to promote products during our teaching videos. Because if you have a catfish rod that works for you, you don't need ours! But if you're ready to upgrade, our equipment should be some you consider.

Pick a brand that has years of experience, tens of thousands of happy customers, and stands behind their gear with an industry-shaking warranty.

The only Catfishing rod in its class with a LIFETIME Warranty

The Catfish Sumo Chop Stick has a LIFETIME Warranty that covers anything you could do to break it.  Accidental, on purpose, whatever.  If you can prove to us it's broken, we'll replace it. For life.

How do you know if the Chop Stick Elite 150 is right for you?

You might be wondering if The Elite 150™ is right for you.  Here's the thing--it's not for everyone. We aren't going to try to trick you into thinking everyone on the planet needs one. They don't.

It could be for you if...

  • ...you are tired of replacing low-quality tackle over and over
  • ...you're just getting into catfishing and don't want to have to upgrade again next season
  • ...you haven't ever experienced the difference of fighting catfish with appropriate tackle
  • ...you want to actually enjoy battling every fish you catch
  • ...you use any of these methods for catfishing: casting, drifting, trolling, suspend fishing
  • ...you fish from the bank or a boat
  • ...you are rough on your gear and a Lifetime Warranty would put you at ease

Who designed the Elite 150™ Catfishing Rod?

It was designed primarily by our Founder, Daniel Leake. He has (truly) a lifetime of catfishing experience and hunts monster catfish, on the water, almost weekly.

We also had frequent input with our design team and help from our focus group, guides, and tournament winners.  We've gone through dozens of rods--testing, bending, twisting, folding, smashing, and snapping them before we finally were happy. (In fact we rejected several hundred rods that didn't meet our standards!)  We refused to settle, and you'll see that when you get yours.

 

Why's The Elite 150™ So Special?

Here's just some of the features:

  • The name says it - The Elite 150™ can dead-lift 150 lbs
  • This is a Medium-Heavy Casting catfish Rod that is 7' 6"
  • It's Moderate Fast Action - meaning the tip is sensitive enough to handle circle hooks and load up with power to self-set hooks
  • As with all our catfish rods, it's a Custom Manufactured Blank - we simply couldn't find anything that fit what we wanted. So we had one made just for us.
  • EVA Foam Handle - easily wipes down, and holds up to trauma from rod holders
  • 10-50lb Line Weight - for deep river monsters, and smaller pond fish
  • 1-10oz Lure Weight - sling large chunks of cut bait, dough balls, and stink bait
  • 1 Piece
  • 10 Strong Double-Fitted, low profile, Stainless Steel Guides that can take the abuse of braided line
  • Full Metal Reel Seat with Double-Locking Rings - nobody wants your reel seat to come apart in the middle of a fight!
  • Hook Tender Loop above handle
  • High Visibility Florescent Tip -easily see bites in the day and night
  • 13" Fighting Handle - tucks under your arm or into your side to transfer leverage through your entire body
  • High-Gloss Finish - wipe all the slime off at the end of the trip!

If you need a pretty catfish rod to match the color of your eyes,  your handbag, and your necklace, you might need to look somewhere else.  But if you want a quality piece of equipment, with a classic look, choose the Elite 150™

What's with the LIFETIME warranty? Surely there's a trick?

Here's the thing: Catfishing can be rough. You're out at unusual hours, sometimes in the dark, in/out of vehicles, up/down rocks, ramps, hills, and sometimes in dangerous areas.  The Chop Stick is tough, but we could imagine that if you rolled a boulder over it, or slammed it in your trunk on accident, there could be damage.

So every Chop Stick carries our LIFETIME WARRANTY. No matter when, no matter why. If it breaks, we'll cover it.

The Lifetime Warranty requires product registration within 30 days of purchase. Then if you encounter any bad luck, just mail it back and we'll replace it for just 50% of MSRP. Deal?

We also warranty our catfish rods against manufacturer defects for 6 months after purchase. This warranty applies to any purchase from an approved distributor and requires proof of purchase. Registration required for this warranty, too.

At Catfish Sumo, one of our Core Values is HONESTY. We don’t ever want anyone to feel tricked when doing business with us. We do everything we can to honestly and plainly explain how we do business, so you know what to expect.

Important Shipping Information:

Fishing rods ship in sturdy shipping tube. All other orders ship in padded envelopes or boxes to protect your order. If you order a rod and other items, your order will ship in multiple packages. You'll receive two shipping confirmations and two tracking numbers.

If you have an important event coming up and need your order by a specific date, please contact us to make sure your order ships with a shipping method that will reach you in time.

Rest assured, if any parcels ever exceed carrier claim timelines, we'll help with any claims or replacements.

catfish sumo catch bigger catfish

Are you ready to finally beat your PB (personal best) catfish??

Catching catfish successfully comes down to three things.  We call it The Three Rights Framework, and here it is:
1) The Right Spot

2) The Right Rig

3) The Right Rig

Now a little more goes into each of these, but as you practice improving each of these Three Rights, you can be SURE that you'll be catching more and BIGGER catfish.

Based in Chattanooga, TN, we have immediate access to the Tennessee River, home to some of the country's largest catfish. We're constantly testing rigs and equipment to gather information that's useful to you.

You can be sure that anything in our store has been tested and improved to help you be as successful as possible.

We're also committed to our Core Values:

Quality: We sell gear that is good, and does something to help you catch better catfish.  It's priced appropriately, easy to get, and professionally built.

Honesty: You won't ever be disappointingly surprised when you do business with us.  You'll get what you ordered, when you expect it (or sooner), and you'll be delighted with what you got.

Guide: We're a leader in the catfishing industry, paving the way with innovative products, and helpful information that you can use to take action and catch bigger catfish!
