Default Carbon fiber portable center rigger

I fished up until now with a shotgun rig straight out of the TTop. While it's been effective, sometimes the lack of drop back and the difficulty of getting the rod down with a hot fish on has been problematic. I decided to go the portable route with a center rigger so I could run without it while not offshore fishing or cruising

I looked at a number of both aluminum and carbon fiber options but I struggled to find something I liked that wasn't outrageously priced. If any of you guys remember the BLY models, then you know that was a great carbon fiber setup at a great price. I finally found one for about $300US shipped from a private company in Australia.

Got it installed yesterday - can't wait to give it a winter wahoo workout when mother nature allows.

Is that the straight butt or bent butt model? Cannot tell from pictures.
The youtube link shows it is the bent butt!

I have been using one on my 26 for a couple of years and it works really well. It looks just like the one you have posted but I don't think mine came from down under. You will enjoy it.
