These rods have a lot going on. Besides the telescoping butt, they use Microwave guides. Has anyone used a rod with these? Then there is the price with the platinum at $190. That is pretty ultimate.

Not really. That's like a midrange St. Croix or Loomis. Apparently you can modify an existing rod too.

Okay I'm way late since I don't read most forum categories but have no fear shortening a rod handle. I do this with some of my long rods that have traditional cork handles. I buy preferred butts at Mudhole and simply hacksaw the handle to length. Push on the butt and glue or epoxey it if you desire. Takes less than 5 minutes.
