All my CB rods are graphite, but I am different than most people. What I do is back up the drag so a 3# fish can pull a little bit, so not to rip it out of their mouths. If you tighten your drag all the way down, then go with the glass rod, if you want to feel a little more out of your rod, go with your graphite rod and back the drag up, that is what I do, but I may be strange on my CB applications. I only have 8 dedicated CB rods and LOVE that way of fishing. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
